Notes NOTES: This is part of an extension to the P & O Steam Navigation Offices on Leadenhall Street and St Mary Axe. The sculptural work is probably by Percy G. Bentham who is known to have produced work for the building. The photographs are dated circa 1927 as that is the year Duncan MacNeill & Co. and J. B. Barry & Son (names visible on the wall board) moved to this building.
