i The New Scheme of Government Offices. Anyone visiting Deiahay-strc-ct,Westrainstcr, to-day will notice that its respectable and picturesque old houses have almost entirely disappeared. Soon, too, this quiet, interesting way will be no more, even as a thoroughfare, for italso is to bejmerged into the Government's httgesehenM for extending the departmental offices south or Charles-street, to the edge of St. James's Park. These offices are the now familiar new Local Government Beard and Education Offices mGrea&Qeorge-stree&and Whitehall extending into Charles-street as far as Delahay-street. Theillustraiaon above shows the houses which are being removed for the completion of the new Government building, which will eventually be one great block reaching from Whitehall to the Park. The whole scheme, originally designed by the late Mr Brydon 10 years ago, is now to be com- pleted by the Office of Works, under the I direction of Sir Henry Tanner. The Local Government Board and the Education Offices already partly enclose an unfinished circular courtyard which has an entrance from Charles- street. It will, when all is done,.have-another vanlted way in from Great George-street, over the ruins of the splendid building of the Insti- tute of Civil Engineers, which, although only erected comparatively recently, will have to make way for the extension. Delayhay-street, so called after a well-known family in St. Margaret's Parish, Westminster, was formerly known as Duke-street. Here, soon after he be- came Lord Chancellor, Judge Jeffreys went to live, King James permitting I I a fair pair of free- stone stairs to be made into the park for Jeffreys' accommodation. Great George-street was built in 1750 as an approach from St. James's Park to Westminster Bridge: The names of famous men connected with it in the past are legion. Captain Marryat was born there. Lord Byron's body lay in state for two days at No. 25. John Wilkes lived there, as did Lord Chancellor Thurlow, Lord Macaulay, and Goldsmith's Lord Clare. Of Charles-street there is little that need be said. From being within the memory of many a lane of low-class inns and drinking dens, it is to-day the hand- somest short way, it can scarcely be-calkrl a thoroughfare, in .Europe. I I.,
