LXIV.—QUEEN'S SQUARE, FINSBURY AVENUE.
Ground landlords, etc.
Messrs. C. and T. Fox and Mr. A. C. Brown are the owners and
occupiers of Nos. 5 and 7 respectively.
Description and date of structure.
This little square, which forms a short cul-de-sac, seems to have just
escaped demolition when Broad Street Goods Station was developed, and,
being now hidden away behind modern City offices, causes an agreeable
No. 5 (Plate 88), which extends across the west end of the square,
consists of three storeys constructed in red-brick facings with gauged arches.
The windows are flush with the wall, those on the ground floor having
shutters, a common feature of the 18th century. The majority of the
window sashes retain their small panes. The central entrance has a
moulded deal door-case, with Doric pilasters supporting a moulded pediment
over a semicircular fanlight. Internally the rooms are small and plain,
and contain nothing of special interest.
The south side of the square is similarly treated, the doorway to No. 7
having a pedimented door-case.
Condition of repair.
In the Council's collection is:—
