TQ2475 : Putney Library

Putney Library in Disraeli Road was built in 1899. The architect was Francis J. Smith. It was paid for by George Newnes, and NEWNES PUBLIC LIBRARY is inscribed in raised lettering above the door. The library is Grade II listed and the ornamentation on the building is particularly attractive. The library is not the only attractive building in Disraeli Road – a little further along is Violet Villa – see https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/6374841
