Conduit Street Gallery at 9 Conduit Street seems to have been a long-standing exhibition venue, available for rent. The architectural gallery is first noted in December 1866 when examinations were held and in 1868 the 'First General Meeting of the London Society was held at the Architectural Gallery, Conduit Street, Regent's Street and an advertisement in the Times on 31 May 1873 for the Conduit-Street Gallery noted that the gallery was 'open daily for the sale of high-class pictures' including a list of 'highly esteemed artists' including W. P. Frith, L. Alma Tadema, and Marcus Stone 'in addition to the class of works advertised above, gentlemen will always find at the Conduit-Street Gallery a collection of pictures, by rising young artists, at very moderate prices.' From 1859 the Architectural Association School and the Royal Institute of British Architects shared rooms at 9 Conduit Street until 1891 and in 1883 Mr Edward Freeman resigned the acting secretaryship of the Society of British Architects and accepted the management of the Nineteenth Century Art Society, the exhibitions of which were held at the Conduit-Street Galleries up until 1892. The Ridley Art Club held their Ninth Exhibition of Pictures at the Conduit Street Galleries, Bond Street, in April and May 1895.
