St Olaf House, Tooley Street
Designed by H S Goodhart-Rendel for the Hays Wharf Company in 1928-32 as offices and warehousing, the Art Deco facade includes turrets and angled walls.
The building is named after the Viking chieftain Olaf Haraldsson (St. Olaf) who attacked London by river in 1009 and tore down London Bridge.
The attack is believed to be the inspiration for the 'London Bridge is falling down' rhyme.
