Audley Mansions. Architect: J.T. Wimperis. 1884-86. 44 Mount Street, Mayfair, London W1. [Click on this image and those below to enlarge them.] Bradley and Pevsner's only comment on the building is that it is “tall and brickish,” but one could also apply their description of the style of a nearby building by this same speculator-architect as "go-anywhere" (542).
