On the way back to Vauxhall station we stopped in at Lassco, an architectural salvage place. It's housed in Brunswick House, a Georgian mansion now surrounded by glass and steel redevelopment. Soon the entire riverfront will look like an enormous council estate.
The old Study now has cases of brassware - and costumes. At the rear, fairground and bar fittings, and this suitcase which was used as a comedy prop and now has a price tag of £375.

To the right of the glass doors are cell door from the Clerkenwell House of Correction, dated to 1614.

Upstairs, a cosy room with objects of all vintages.
You can just about see some of that encroaching glass&steel construction through the shuttered windows.
