Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen Street, London: Hall of the Grand Lodge

Sandby, Thomas (1721-1798)
SOURCE: R. Ackermann. The Microcosm of London (London, 1835), vol. II, pl. 38

Design for a proposed Sussex Memorial

Hansom, Joseph Aloysius (1803-1882)
SOURCE: Builder, vol. 1, 1843 Sept. 23, p. 398 NOTES: Hansom proposed this memorial building following the death in 1843 of the Prince Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex. He described it as "a Sussex Memorial, a Sussex Library (for here I would have his books preserved), a Freemasons' Hall, a Hall of Literature and Science, and, finally, a living type of the arts of structure and design as understood and practised among us up to and at this period."

Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen Street, London: entrance to the Grand Temple

Ashley & Newman
NOTES: This, the third Freemasons' Hall to be built in Queen Anne Street, is both the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England and the principal meeting place for Lodges in London. It was built in 1927-1933 as a memorial to the many Freemasons who died on active service during World War I and was initially known as the Masonic Peace Memorial.
