Ocean Chambers. Lowgate

Well the doorway was open so I did not resist the temptation to have a sneaky peak inside. This is Ocean Chambers on Lowgate built in 1900 in what is called a baroque revival style. It has some pretty fancy detailing including this cartouche with attending dolphins. I'm assuming from the name that it had some maritime/shipping connection originally, now it's the offices of a law firm.


  1. lucky you and lucky us that you took a peek and that you shared what you found.

  2. Very pretty. Our City Hall has similar cartouches. Must have been a thing, once upon a time.

  3. The cartouche is quite eye-catching!
