Edward Blore, architect and antiquary, is best remembered for his completion of John Nash's design of Buckingham Palace, following Nash's dismissal. He completed the palace in a style similar but plainer than that intended by Nash. In 1847 Blore returned to the palace and designed the great facade facing the Mall, which enclosed the central quadrangle. He also worked on Lambeth Palace and St James' Palace in London, and a large number of other designs in both England and Scotland, including restoring Salisbury Tower at Windsor Castle.
