Although I spotted the motorbike as a Blip subject, I was also interested in the building. It is of the art moderne architectural style which followed art deco. Inspired by the Great Depression, art moderne aimed for greater simplicity and streamlining, in place of the opulence of art deco.

Features of the art moderne style include curved external walls, glass block windows and curved windows, and concrete rendering or stucco in place of timber and stone. Some also featured porthole style windows.

Thanks for hosting BobsBlips. Stay well all.
