Saint Olave King of Norway

Site: St Olaf House (2 memorials)

SE1, Tooley Street, St Olaf House

This striking Art Deco building was designed by Harry Stuart Goodhart-Rendel, 1928-32 as HQ for the Hay's Wharf Company and built on the site of St Olave church.  It is listed Grade II* and now, 2013, used by London Bridge Private Hospital.

The plaque is on the right corner of the building. The large mosaic drawing is at first floor level on the left corner - in our picture you can just see Olave's left leg. 

A London Inheritance has photos of this building from the river.
