Alfred Waterhouse (1830-1905), Architect
Though not exclusively devoted to any particular style, and feeling that considerations of practical utility should never give way to archaeological precedent, he has generally, when free to choose, adopted Gothic or Romanesque styles, as being in his opinion most suited to English requirements in the present day. 
He joined in founding and was president till 1901 of the Society for checking the Abuses of Public Advertising, a form of vulgarisation of the scenery of town or country which was particularly odious to him.
