Memorial: St Dunstan's House - plasterwork panels

Inscription

These plaques, removed from the North wall of the original St Dunstan's House office building in Fetter Lane (built 1886 - demolished 1976) are fine examples of late 19th century decorative plasterwork. Their design has been attributed to Walter Crane, 1845 - 1915.

This example of architectural reclamation was brought to our attention by Discovering London's Friday elephant. There you can see not just the elephant but some excellent photographs of these 6 plasterwork panels.
