New Court House, Westminster, or Westminster Guildhall.

This building stands on the south side of the area which has been lately formed in front of Westminster Hall and Westminster Abbey, by the removal of many old houses, which heretofore obstructed the view of these venerable edifices, and St. Margeret's Church. It is a handsome modern structure, entered by a few steps under a vestibule, supported by massy columns of the Doric order. It is plain and substantial, and answers the double purpose of a "court of sessions for the city of Westminster," and a "court for the relief of insolvent debtors."
