Who was Alfred Brumwell Thomas?

Sir Alfred Brumwell Thomas was an architect born in Virginia Water, Surrey who trained at Westminster School of Art and became an exponent of the Baroque Revival, a style of architecture prevalent for public buildings in the early years of the 20th century.

In 1906, he was made a fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, knighted by King Edward VII, and also designed two more public buildings: town halls in Woolwich in South East London, and the city of Belfast. Belfast city hall, faced with portland stone and with a copper dome and lavish marble interiors, is thought of as the finest example of Edwardian Baroque in the British Isles.

Sir Alfred is also known for his war memorials at Dunkirk and Belfast.
