Invitation - Reception for Sultan Aziz in London

Invitation to a reception given by the City of London in honour of Sultan Aziz during his stay in London in July 1867. Aziz cultivated good relations with the Second French Empire and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and was the first Ottoman sultan to visit Western Europe, in 1867, which included a visit to England, where he was made a Knight of the Garter by Queen Victoria and shown a Royal Navy Fleet Review with his Khedive of Egypt. He travelled by a private rail car, which today can be found in the Rahmi M. Koc Museum in Istanbul. His fellow Knights of the Garter created in 1867 were Charles Gordon-Lennox, 6th Duke of Richmond, Charles Manners, 6th Duke of Rutland, Henry Somerset, 8th Duke of Beaufort, Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, Franz Joseph I of Austria and Alexander II of Russia.

The new U.P.W. Headquarters, Clapham, London

The new U.P.W. (Union of Postal Workers) Headquarters, Clapham, London. The architect, L A Culliford designed the new headquarters for the Union of Post Office Workers roughly on the footprint of the original Grove Lodge (with a frontage on Abbeville Road). This building was opened on 16th July 1937. An article in The Builder in September 1937 gave a detailed description and several photographs. It pointed out that the building had been planned to take advantage of the pleasant surroundings with all working rooms facing south, and storage and filing rooms on the north side. Now the building is '9 Metropolitan Crescent' after conversion to apartments. Date: 1937
