A view of the eighteenth-century Georgian front doorway at 3 Queen Square, Holborn. Part of the door to the neighbouring house at number 2, dating from the same period, can also be seen in the photograph. The door of number 3 contains various classical style features typical of the eighteenth-century, including a six panelled door, a semi-circular fanlight with sunrise pattern, and classical piers with decorated capitals surmounted by a flat pediment with carved garlands of foliage attached to a central ornate dish/urn. Above the side piers are two decorative medallions. On the door can be seen a brass handle, letter box and a small knocker with a lion's head. Black and white marble tiles extend from the front door to the street and iron railings with small metal urns surmounting the front piers flank the sides of the short path to the door. The neighbouring front door contains two panels at the bottom and four leaded windows about it. A semi-circular fanlight in the sunrise pattern can be seen above the door. The path in front of the door is also tiled. Number 2 Queen Square has survived but number 3 has been replaced by a late twentieth-century office block.
