London Bridge and Adelaide House - old postcard
Adelaide House was built in the Art Deco style between 1924 and 1925 on the site of the previous Adelaide House. With air-conditioning and 11 floors it has been described as the first modern office building in a generally low-rise London. At the time, the 148 foot high, steel-framed building, constructed in the standard American way, was the tallest building in the City.
