contributed by davidb

Until the advent of desk-top publishing, Fleet Street was the home of all the national newspapers in England, where they were written, typeset and printed. Computers changed all that, and in the late 1980s and early 1990s, most of the publishers sold up and moved out. This building, once the home of the Daily Express newspaper, was one of the first curtain-walled buildings in the country. It features clear glass and black enameled panels (known as 'Vitrolite'), held in a frame with chrome-plated strips. The fašade is credited to Sir Owen Williams, with Ellis and Clarke responsible for the remainder of the original building. The Art Deco entrance lobby was designed by Robert Atkinson, with plaster reliefs depicting aspects of industry by Eric Aumonier. Sadly only the protected fašade and the lobby of the original building survive, having been integrated into a huge, and rather ordinary office building.
