The Corner House, Market Place, Braintree, Essex
The Corner House was built in 1929, it is thought as a Restaurant, a year after Braintree Town Hall, now the "Town Hall Centre".
Both were sponsored by William Julien Courtauld. A circular plaque on the left end wall is marked "19 WJC 29" and on the right end wall "19 CCC 29", his wife Constance Cicely Courtauld. In the book "The Buildings of England - Essex" by James Bettley and Nikolaus Pevsner, it states The Corner House probably shared the same architect as the Town Hall: E. Vincent Harris.
On the corner of the roof line, not visible in the above image, is a spotlight which illuminates the Town Hall Centre Clock Tower.
A 1965 image by Adrian Cable, a member of the family who later ran the Restaurant can be seen below.
Today, the building is the base for the Braintree Chamber of Trade and Commerce LinkExternal link and Business Development Services (NW Essex) LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .
