The Old Town Hall

John Johnson (d. 1920)

1880

Staines, Middlesex (now a part of Surrey)

An Associate of RIBA (the Royal Institute of British Architects), Johnson was praised in his obituary in the RIBA journal as "a rapid sketcher and excellent draughtsman" (Vol. 27, 1919/1920, p. 459). Amongst his other civic projects were the Anstice Working Men's Institute, Madeley, Shropshire (1870; see offsite here); and the considerably grander Bootle Town Hall (1882; see offsite here).
