Bibendum, Fulham Road
Bibendum, Fulham Road
This was formerly the Michelin Building, but is now a collection of shops and restaurants inside. Ian Nairn has to say of it in Nairn's London (1966): "One of the least likely buildings of an unlikely city. There are glazed tiles all over, and motor tyres on the parapet - though no chubby rubber men - and the Michelin monogram and 'Bibendum' in thumping great letters, and all round the walls at eye level are early motoring scenes with such an air to them that the Fulham Road dissolves and you are back in the 1900s, with clouds of dust and the enraged sputtering of the motor in a deep, quiet countryside. They are a bit like Toulouse Lautrec posters done in tile." Some of these can be seen at LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link
