Description

Bronze plaque with relief portrait circumscribed: RICHARD NORMAN SHAW ARCHITECT - 1831 · 1912

Annotation

Unveiled 13 July 1914. Lethaby commended Thornycroft on his posthumous likeness of Shaw: "You must have remembered much, the curled over lip and the serious smiling, saucy look are so alike..." The building is generally regarded as Shaw's masterpiece.
