Notes SOURCE: Regent Street: a series of 57 views taken August 1910 (London, 1940) NOTES: All Souls was designed in Classical Revival style by John Nash and built in 1822-1824. Severe damage to the roof was sustained following a World War II mine explosion in 1940, necessitating an extensive restoration scheme under the direction of Goodhart-Rendel which was completed in 1951. Queen's Hall, designed by T. E. Knightley and C. J. Phipps, opened in 1893 and was famous for being where the Promenade concerts were founded in 1895. It was destroyed by an incendiary bomb in 1941 during the Blitz.
