The decoration to parapets of this building and the Aldwyn Towers Court half a block away was identical but the letters "YMCA - CVJM" were included in the design of this one. Unfortunately much of this decoration and the lettering has been removed from the YMCA c2005. The building overlooks Holy Trinity Church.
