Our Tour Continues by Walking to the Center of the Arcade.
Walk to the center of the Arcade.
Notice the Gothic canopies surrounding the small windows to the left and right of the elevator bank. The castle-like canopy, with its battlement evolved from a Norman fortification to a short-lived style employed by Henry VIII. You will find the winged grotesque on the corners of the elevator supports. The Atlantic Terra Cotta Company’s versatility is demonstrated by this figure, shaped within its base rather than attached to it.
