Decorative tiling for a shop front façade, to a design by A. W. N. Pugin. No. 97 (Harvie & Hudson, the shirt-makers) Jermyn Street, on the corner with York Street "apparently kept the Victorian shop storey with its tiles to a Pugin design when rebuilt in 1910 by Robert Angell" (Bradley and Pevsner 609). The shop is said to have "one of the finest mid-Victorian shopfronts in London" (Weinreb et al. 441).
This is a fashionable street just south of Piccadilly in the St James's area of London, going back to the seventeenth century. Further along is Floris, a perfumer which was patronised by Florence Nightingale.
