Ladies who lunch
Ladies lunching on the first floor at the plush Room restaurant on King Street. This was previously the Reform Club building, built in 1871 for males in the Liberal Party.
The three-storey Venetian gothic building was designed by Edward Salomans and is constructed of sandstone with elaborate corner turrets, oriel windows and balconies. (An oriel window is a gothic style bay window that protrudes but does not reach the ground).
I will post a view of the whole building another time.
