Gresham Street
The building at the corner of King Street (nos. 42-44) dates from 1850-52 and was the work of Sancton Wood, a pupil of Robert Smirke. Pevsner comments on the quality of the decoration and speculates that the ground floor arcade of segmental arches, a common later motif, may here have been an innovation of Wood. It was built for the Queen's Assurance Company. Grade II listed.
Adjoining it are more late-C19th commercial buildings.
