Categories: Architecture

Architect of St Barts Hospital in 1861. Son of architect Philip Hardwick. We are not actually sure which of the two produced the Speke obelisk in 1866. Hardwick Snr has a track record in obelisks, having done one for Bellot in Greenwich in 1855, but he was aged 74 in 1866 and retired. So our money is on Hardwick Jnr. an active 44 at the time. The two obelisks are extremely similar so Jnr. did not have much designing to do.
