We thank Steve Roffey for alerting us to this item at Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association 1. We thank FNA for the photos and for their careful analysis confirming the address of this now lost building and plaque.

The building was demolished in 1966 and it was probably the expectation of that destruction that prompted the unknown photographer to take the photos.

Wikipedia gives the architects as "Davis and Emanuel Pevsner". We believe the "Pevsner" to be an error, that has been widely copied.
