THOUGHTS

The door behind the metal fencing leads into a building that once housed Tit-Bits. One night, a few years ago, I was walking down Exeter Street with a friend when we noticed the door was ajar. We did not trespass. However, since that night, I have regretted not going through the door and taking a look around the building.

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.
