TQ2979 : The portico of 58 Buckingham Gate

taken 3 years ago, near to Westminster, Great Britain

The portico of 58 Buckingham Gate
The portico of 58 Buckingham Gate
This is the portico of 58 Buckingham Gate, which in 1895 was listed as the 'Drill Hall, (13th Westminster R.V.)'. The white stone 'ribbon' across the front of the building once carried the words 'THE QUEEN'S WESTMINSTER RIFLES.', with 'WESTMINSTER' dipping below the portcullis, but much of that is illegible today. (An early photograph can be seen in the 'Great War Forum' discussion thread LinkExternal link )

In more recent years the building was used by the Metropolitan Police.
