Civic Centre, Rainham Road North (2)
Built in 1936-37 by E. Berry Webber with F.C. Lloyd, the Borough Engineer. A striking building which borrows from classical architecture - the portico, its symmetry and use of brick - but which is most definitely also "go-ahead and modern" (Pevsner). You can't see from the picture, but the panels in the frieze represent Engineering, Local Government and Navigation. Grade II listed.
It serves as the main building of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, whose proud boast can be seen above the portico. A wider view can be found here TQ4986 : Civic Centre, Rainham Road North (1).
