A more imaginative use of off-form reinforced concrete can be seen in the Wentworth Building constructed on City Road in stages between the late 1960s and the early 1990s (photo above). Many alumni, though, will have fond memories of the building that stood there previously, in fact from the 1880s, a popular watering hole called the Lalla-Rookh (photo below).
