This is Southbank House built in 1876 on the corner of Lambeth High Street and Black Prince Road. The building was the Pottery's s Museum and Art school.for Doulton Pottery in Lambeth, London. The pottery was founded in 1815 in Lambeth but the factory had to close in 1956 due to the Clean Air Act and production was moved to The Potteries in Staffordshire.
The building is unusual as it is decorated with terracota tiles showing off the variety of styles that Doulton produced. It appears to be a very effective way of advertising its wares.
This is part of the decoration around the window.
Nowadays the building is used as an office block for a variety of companies.
