Throwback Thursday: 107 Charing Cross Road, London

Currently the address of a large Foyle’s bookshop, 107 Charing Cross, built in 1938, used to house the college for the Distributive Trades and St Martin’s School of Art.

The doorway was decorated with impressive carved panels. There are eight panels in total by Adolfine Ryland which show different occupations such as a draper’s assistant drawing fabric from a bolt of cloth…

…and a cashier examining a ledger at her desk.
