Somerset House, Memory Lane
Inigo Jones perished in the year 1612. A lovely verse is credited to the Queen Mother where she describes the Somerset House thus-
\"Before my gate a road`s broad channel goes,
Which still of crowding individuals streams with waves;
And every day there passes by my side,
Up to its western reach, the London tide,
The term`s spring-tides. My front looks down
On all the pride and local business of the town.\"
Somerset House was more acclaimed as the place where all significant records like death and birth certificates resided. So someone had to file a death or birth, they had to visit with the office placed in this magnificent palatial house, which the banks of the River Thames found. This building had enormous historical significance till then, because someone wanted a copy of any documented deaths and births, they could get those after payment of a nominal fee at the offices found.
What we see of this awe inspiring and magnificent structure is a renovated faade, as Somerset House as a local business is said to have suffered considerably during the Second World War. The southern wing of the home was said to have been totally damaged, and it was only that it was fixed. It was Sir Albert Richardson who is credited with the new recreated version, which came at price and was completed only in the year 1952.
