First and second class entrances. The British Listed Buildings site identifies the spandrel figures on the second-class entrance as reclining river gods and those on the first-class one as “reclining figures of Aqua and Eura.”

Left: a grotesque humanoid creature above the spandrel with river gods. Right: A women's face whose streaming Art Nouveau hair matches the lettering on the building.

As Robert Freidus pointed out, the sculptor depicted Tower Bridge in the upper left corner.

Left to right: The terracotta acanthus frieze, the roofline, and the Art Nouveau lettering above the entrances on the main fašade.
