Discussion St. James Commentary

"S. Clement Danes, Strand... and S. James, Picadilly... are remarkable for their two-storeyed aisles in which galleries are supported by square piers surmounted by Corinthian columns and a barrel-vaulted roof, intersected by semi-cylindrical vaults at right angles over the gallery bays."

— Sir Banister Fletcher's A History of Architecture, 19th Ed., p1022.
