THOUGHTS

Whenever I am in the neighbourhood of the Strand and Southampton Street, I stop by the building that once housed George Newnes Limited. It was constructed around the time the Strand Magazine was launched and George Newnes Limited was founded in 1891. The clock once had George Newnes written on its face.
