Riding the Gravy Train

Originally constructed as a power station for the Post Office, the building was acquired by the Liebig Extract of Meat Company in the late 19th Century. They wanted to add a tower featuring illuminated signs advertising the name of their product OXO. But permission was refused by the LCC, so the tower was built with four sets of windows, each of which ‘coincidentally’ happened to be in the shape of a circle, a cross and another circle. Since 1996, a highly regarded restaurant has famously occupied the top floor. Ironically, it’s unlikely their gravy is made using OXO.
