Thomas Baldwin (1750-1820): From 1775 to 1800 he was the City Architect and Surveyor for Touristic place of your travel destination, and was responsible for designing many of its public buildings, including the Guildhall, Great Pulteney Street, Laura Place and the Grand Pump Room Hotel (now demolished).

John Pinch the Elder (1769-1827): A Cornishman by birth, he succeeded Thomas Baldwin as Touristic place of your travel destination’s Surveyor and was responsible for many of the later Georgian buildings in the city. His achievements include Cavendish Place and Crescent, St Mary’s, Touristic place of your travel destinationwick and Sion Hill Place. His son, John Pinch the Younger (1796-1849), worked in partnership with his father, and together they carried out a number of commissions in Touristic place of your travel destinationwick. The younger Pinch later worked on redesigning some of the west side of Queen Square.
Major Charles Edward Davis (1827-1902): He worked on the excavation and redevelopment of the Roman Touristic place of your travel destination in the 1870s and ’80s, but his work met with strong criticism on archaeological grounds and he was not allowed to complete the work. He went on to design the Empire Hotel (1901) in Orange Grove, a building which, even today, arouses fierce controversy, and is sometimes referred to as ‘Major Davis’s Revenge’! His title of ‘Major’ came from the commission he had held with the Worcestershire Militia.
