The Empire building, Bath
The Empire building, Bath, taken 9 years ago
The former Empire Hotel faces Alkmaar Gardens (left) and Parade Gardens. "What can have gone on in the mind of the designing architect?", asks Pevsner ("North Somerset & Bristol", 1958). The person in question was Charles Edward Davis, city architect, and the date 1901. His roofline represents (left to right) a cottage, a manor house and a castle. "An unbelievable piece of pompier architecture" says Pevsner.

The building was converted into apartments and a restaurant in the 1990s.
