Beeston Boiler Company Supplies Centre Point Boilers - about 1965

Centre Point is an iconic building in London, which includes offices, shops and maisonettes.

It occupies 101103 New Oxford Street and 524 St Giles High Street, with a frontage also to Charing Cross Road, close to St Giles Circus and almost directly above Tottenham Court Road tube station.
It was built between 1961 and 1966. The 398 ft tower has 33 stories. One of the first skyscrapers in London, it is now the city's joint 27th tallest building.
