Britannia, two Arabic men, a lion, a camel, a crocodile, a black man carrying tusks, a colonial loading a gun, the head of an elephant, a wildebeest and a snake ?

Benjamin Clemens (the sculptor) is responsible for the look of 'Africa House', a somewhat exotic 1920's building that stands half-way along the Kingsway. It is probably best viewed from the other side of the wide street.

Despite all these rather un-PC correct references, the building still houses amongst other things the London offices of (inappropriately enough) UNICEF.

A real period piece.
