      This building was opened in 1905 as a residential club for young men; it was subsequently used by the Y.W.C.A. and as a private residential club for ladies. From 1937 it was used by the John Benn Boys' Hostels Association for the accommodation of boys between the ages of 14 and 18 without a home in London. The architect was Arthur T. Bolton and the builders were Rudd and Son. The building is skilfully planned in the form of a St. Andrew's cross, so that there are no internal courts and every room has a good outlook. As originally arranged it contained 208 bedrooms and many club-rooms including a dining-hall, lounge, library and smoking-room, together with such recreational facilities as a gymnasium, billiard-room, fives-courts, tennis-courts and a miniature rifle-range.
