Office Building, Twickenham

Office Building, Twickenham

I snapped this Art Deco office building in Twickenham in 2003 when this fabulous clock tower attracted my attention.

I know nothing about the building but from the decoration I suspect it was associated with a local Electric Board or and Electrical Showroom.

A relief above the door shows a disembodied hand perhaps generating or conducting electrical waves to transmission lines.

Other reliefs on the building are less ambiguous clearly showing a lit electric light globe.
