Former Ingersoll Showrooms
Former Ingersoll Showrooms
British History Online says "The former warehouse and showroom of the Ingersoll Watch Co. Ltd, Nos 223–227. A speculative development, this was designed by Stanley Waghorn, architect, for Gilbert Waghorn, both of Adam Street, Strand, and completed for Ingersoll, whose logo is picked out in green and cream mosaic over the St John Street elevation. The builders were W. H. Gaze & Sons Ltd. In 1995–6 the building was converted to flats (sold as unfinished 'shells'), with a basement car park. It was named Pattern House, having been Cond้ Nast's Vogue pattern factory in the 1950s."
The Ingersoll company made clocks and watches.
