The Offices of Watson Fothergill
15 &17 George Street, Nottingham
He designed these offices that date from 1895 for himself. They are one of the best surviving examples of his style and in the detail he pays tribute to those he admired and who influenced his work by incorporating the busts of Augustus Welby Pugin and George Edmond Street into the front facade together with inscriptions of the names Scott. Burges and Shaw, not forgetting a statue of a medieval architect in the centre.
Watson didn't go in for bland rectangular boxes and the city skyline is much enhanced by his efforts. It is such a great shame that others such as the magnificent Black Boy Hotel, Long Row fell victim to re-developments in the 1960's. For more information on Fothergill click here
