taken 8 years ago, near to Poplar, Tower Hamlets, Great Britain

Former Poplar Board of Works, Poplar High Street
Former Poplar Board of Works, Poplar High Street
A splendid piece of Victorian polychromy. In an Italian Gothic style by Hills and Fletcher with A. and C. Harston in 1869-70. The tower in particular is a lovely touch with its spired dome, rich carvings and decorative frieze. Grade II listed.
At the time of the photo, the building appeared to be disused, although, externally at least, it seemed to be in reasonable condition.
