County Hall, London

County Hall, London 

Former County Hall taken from Westminster Bridge. (Now a hotel)

County Hall (sometimes called London County Hall, LCH) is a building in Lambeth, London, which was the headquarters of London County Council and later the Greater London Council (GLC). The building is on the bank of the River Thames, just north of Westminster Bridge,

The main six storey building was designed by Ralph Knott. It is faced in Portland stone in an Edwardian Baroque style. The construction, which was undertaken by Holland, Hannen & Cubitts, started in 1911 and the building was opened in 1922 by King George V. The North and South blocks, which were built by Higgs and Hill, were added between 1936 and 1939. The Island block was not completed until 1974.

Excellent photo and most interesting notes, June.
I so often hear of "County Hall on the south side" that it seams strange to associate it being on the north side...which is correct of course, when linked to the bridge.
