This Club, which occupies the corner of Waterloo Place, and is also numbered 116 and 117, Pall Mall, has a limited membership of 1,600 persons, most of whom are combatant senior officers, both military and naval. To the left of our picture Regent Street begins, and just visible in the middle of that Street are the figures of guardsmen which form part of Bells striking monument to over two thousand officers and soldiers of the Guards who perished in the Crimean Campaign, Half hidden by the colonnade which formerly flanked the south side of Her Majesty's Opera house, razed to the ground in 1893, is the dome of the National Gallery, and the graceful spire to the right is that of the church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
