This intriguing looking building was home to the headquarters of the Singer sewing machine company from 1904. Later it was home to the American Consulate for a few years.

In recent times it contained a large bookshop, and now a shopping arcade.

Recently restored, the Singer globe and emblem at the top of the building stand out amongst the surrounding buildings.

Well worth a photo if you are wandering by.
