Our picture only shows a part of this large building, by E. W. Mountford, 1892-4. Built as a school it housed Lambeth College for a time and in 2008 there were plans to turn it into a hotel. 2011, and it's looking rather sad.
On the facade are three arched pediments with sculpted reliefs as follows, left to right:
- two lounging school-boys and the dates 1571 - 1894.
Ornamental Passions have some good pictures and the sculpture, probably by Montford, is rather fine. We have also accepted their identification of the two busts which we are sure is right.
