TQ3381 : 37-38 Threadneedle Street

37-38 Threadneedle Street
37-38 Threadneedle Street
Built for the British Linen Bank in 1902-03 by J. Macvicar Anderson. Fairly grandiose with fluted pilasters, arched and rusticated ground floor to imbue the building (and its occupants) with an air of solidity and respectability (qualities it is currently hard to associate with banks), and decorative square chimneys. Pevsner describes it as Palladian, but to me the many projections and recessions of the facade give it more of a Baroque flavour. Grade II listed.
