London Advertisement Hall

Source: The Illustrated London News, Nov. 17, 1855, p.583

This is a a novel appropriation of the premises formerly known as Hungerford-hall, Strand, which is now made a spacious thoroughfare to the suspension-bridge and steam-boats. Upon the walls are effectively-displayed advertisements; and classified registers are kept for gratuitous reference. As the traffic to the steam-boats exceeds six millions annually, great publicity is ensured for the wall­announcements, and the establishment bids fair to prove extensively useful, and deserves encouragement. The concentration which it ensures must greatly economise the time of persons in quest of information.
