Just a little update on this one really, as this fine building has gone down hill terribly since my last visit a couple of years ago. Many of the features have been lost to the local scallies, to the point it may be getting past the point where it can be brought back.
Heart wrenching for anyone who loves the finer details...

The water is getting to the tiles badly in this section, so much so the salt is escaping from the glaze...

Ceiling totally gone in the corridor to the banking hall

I was quite disappointed to see the acid etched glass is now virtually totally lost

Again, disappointing to see these very unusual windows ruined beyond repair

Speed noticed a letter poking out from behind the peeling paint, a bi of scraping revealed this:

Good update and some finer detail there, such a shame to see this building's demise, I do hope the tiled bit can be incorporated somehow into whatever happens with this place in the future

Sad to see it go downhill so quickly, it was a stunning building.

Nice update, wish I’d got here sooner but those tiles are still looking good in places.
