    Default The last Georgian building in Lord st?

    Took these pic's of the silver lambanana,outside "Boodles",one I haven't seen before! I noticed the building next door,which looking at the style of it,behind the modern frontage,looks like it might be georgian(?) and if it is,the only one surviving in Lord st.I didn't get the number,but wondered if anyone knew anything of it's past,etc?

    Not sure about the 'georgian' building but did you see the Royal Thai Consulate in the Boodles building?........I must have passed that building a million times and only noticed it a few weeks ago!

    Hello Steve

    I think you could be right that it is an old Georgian building. The long middle windows and the shorter top windows are probably a give-away. The windows above the Fish and Chip shop frontage have been gussified I think in the Victorian classical manner and would have looked originally more like the middle windows. "Boodles" -- is that what used to be Boodle & Dunthorne????

    Cheers

    Hi Chris,
    I also thought that,as the frontage is set further back,than the rest of the street,it might be part of the original line of buildings.There is an example of the change of street street widths in Colin Wilkinson's thread,where the building previous to George Henry Lee's,was set back further,which possibly continued down to Lord st? As for "Boodles",I wondered where the Dunthorne had gone!?

    You must have looked dodgy! Last year around Christmas time they had a different type of 'bouncer' in the form of a rather pretty young lady dressed head to toe in fur. (fake fur I hope!!)

    Seems the loss of Dunthorne was a marketing strategy...........

    Very interesting. Thanks! Maybe their marketing strategy is that they think that Boodles sounds trendy while Boodle and Dunthorne sounds old fashioned.

    I would have thought the original name sounded more"refined" if they're going for the international market,especially the U.S.?
