87 to 102 Mount Street (including 26-33 South Audley Street). Listed Building. 1889-95. Architect: Albert J. Bolton. [Click on this image and those below to enlarge them.] Plaque on S. Audley St.

Volume 40 of The Survey of London explains that this “terrace, with return into South Audley Street, of purpose built shops and flats” was part of the late-nineteenth-century Grosvenor Estate redevelopment. Bolton used “fine quality red brick and moulded terracotta, slate roofs, in an ornate Franco-Flemish Renaissance style” and designed his "ground floor shop front with terracotta, panelled, pilasters.”

Note in both photographs the variations in chimneys, roof tops (domes and multi-facted tower roofs), bridges across recesses, and alternation of red brick and moulded terracotta surfaces.
