NOTES: The ground floor of Cranbourn Chambers at the corner of Charing Cross Road and Cranbourn Street had originally been an underground station. It was vacated in 1934 when London Transport required the space for the building of the new Leicester Square underground station. After the Second World War, the building was occupied by the British Transport Commmission, who employed Peter Moro in association with Gordon and Ursula Bowyer, to convert the ground floor into offices for the Commercial Advertising Division of the Commission.
