Admiralty Office.

This is a large pile, built with brick and stone. The front towards Whitehall has two deep wings and a lofty portico, supported by four large stone pillars. A piazza, consisting of beautiful columns, runs almost from one end to the other. The wall before the court has been built in an elegant manner, and each side of the gate is ornamented, with naval emblems. Besides a hall, and other public apartments, here are spacious houses for seven commissioners of the admiralty.
