one of two beautiful modern headstops from the main entrance of the college, originally built in 1856-7 by w.g. and e. habershon for a college founded in 1791 in fitzroy square., it later became st.marylebone grammar school, and now again houses part of an independent school. If I had to guess, I'd say that these were done in the 1950s, and are much more convincing works than the art-by-the-yard on woolworths next door, perhaps aptly so.
