LIFE wrote: ‘The grave losses caused by the war and the graver losses re­sult­ing from 50 years of prop­erty de­vel­op­ment have not left Lon­don so well stocked with fine ar­chi­tec­ture that she can af­ford to lose two of her finest mon­u­ments. For there is no doubt that the threat­ened Great Hall and Doric Arch at Eus­ton can be so de­scribed’ (July 20, 1961).
