Bunning, James Bunstone

Bunning, James Bunstone (1802–63). London architect who was surveyor to several organizations, including the London Cemetery Company and The Haberdashers' Company. He designed the Egyptian Revival avenue and other structures at Highgate Cemetery, and the Classical Grecian lodges and gates at Nunhead Cemetery (1839–43). In 1843 he was appointed ‘Clerk to the City's Works’ (the title was changed to City Architect in 1847), and he was responsible for several street improvements. In 1848 he prepared the first plans for Holborn Viaduct. His masterpiece (demolished 1962) was generally regarded to be the London Coal Exchange (1846–9), an internal top-lit galleried rotunda of cast iron concealed within an Italianate Classical exterior. He also designed the handsome Italianate Metropolitan Cattle Market, Caledonian Road (1855)—only the clock-tower and the corner pubs survive—and the castellated Holloway Prison (1849–52), largely demolished. He was the author of Designs for Tombs and Monuments (1839).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
