Every time you show some feature of this SE, I can't help but compare it with modern SE's. This one is a winner.
Tom Wilson: When stockbrokers were gentlemen ;-)
Lots of curlicues and curves.
Tom Wilson: Now a lost art in buildings.
What a magnificent staircase.
Tom Wilson: Something special, eh?
Shame they skimped on it Tom....smile
It is all rather grand. The carpet looks a bit narrow!
