Carreras Cigarette Factory: Hampstead Road, London NW1    The black cat was the logo of Carreras Cigarettes, designed by M.E and O.H Collins with A.G Porri in 1928, just a few years after Howard Carter had discovered the tomb of the Tutankhamun. The façade was stripped of it's decorations in the 1960s and became Greater London House. Thankfully it was restored in 1999. I love Pevsner's description - Carreras' abominable factory with a showy Egyptian centre and utilitarian side ranges.
