An enigmatic relic, 213 Oxford Street W1

Abutting larger and more modern buildings, this attractive but slightly down-at-heel corner building has three reliefs suggesting a connection with the 1951 Festival of Britain. Just what this connection was I have been unable to ascertain. Today the ground floor is part of the adjacent Zara fashion store and its upper floors appear to be in use as office space.
