Prudential tower

In our groups we have all decided which buildings each of us will take on to model. I was assigned to the Prudential tower which is sadly not here today, but images can still be found within books and online. Research I have got before includes the Prudential tower in so I am going to gather all the images I have and put them into this blog post. The Prudential tower was used as insurance offices until it was bombed in 1941 during the war. A cafe was located in the basement called Ye Mecca where people went to smoke and play board games such as chess, this detail is very notable as it could potentially be incorporated into our project.
