W. Hill & Sons Bakery

Thomas Verity was commissioned to design W. Hill & Sons Hygienic Bakery in James Street, London. He decided that the principal area of the façade should be reserved for the display of high sculpture and Harry Bates was commissioned to design two sets of reliefs in terracotta to adorn the building. The work was completed in 1887. This building was demolished in 1980 and the reliefs were rescued for a replacement building, 60 Buckingham Gate, which is now the South Korean Embassy.
