Lavers and Barraud, London

LONDON_laversBarraud

Set in a stone frieze of this late 19th century building, these serif letters have unusual bifurcated terminals. They give the name of Lavers and Barraud a company producing  stained glass windows from 1855 until 1921. They were part of the Gothic Revival  movement that influenced the architecture of English church and commercial buildings  in the 19th century – a style seen in  their own premises on Betterton Street.

Location: Betterton Street, Covent Garden, London, UK.
