This beautiful old City Hall building sits stately on the corner of Oxford & Argyle Street in East London. It's Victorian Renascence style of construction began in 1897 and was completed in 1899 when the British still occupied this territorial area. The clock tower was later added to the building for Queen Victoria's jubilee 60th anniversary of being on the throne. The structure stands out with its red walls and white accents among all else in the area. It really is an amazing structure to see and photograph.

BOTTOM LINE: Worth seeing if only for a drive-by. The day we were here there was a funeral going on for someone inside and it was very crowded. The building is very nicely preserved. The structure's details are and clock tower are beautiful to behold. The area around the City Hall is perhaps questionable for walking around, so be warned. Stop just to see it and take a photo. It really is a nice historic structure to view. MY RATING: 8/10.

CAUTION: You know sometimes you feel the hair at the back of your heard rise? Well I felt that here. I suggest only stopping for a brief taxi photo stop with a local and not walk around. The area just gave me the creeps. Just my thoughts. If you are white, you will stand WAY out of place. This is no place to flash cameras, jewelry or cash if buying something. Just stop for the photo only is my advise.
