Title
House in Abingdon Street
Description
Oblique side elevation of 29 Abingdon Street, Westminster. A four-storey, brick-built Georgian house. A gas street lamp is visible and behind the railings is a garden with a tree and beyond this the Jewel House within The Tower of London. Taken during the World War II, the kerbs have been painted with white stripes to aid visibility in a blackout. A large-diameter metal pipe laid at the foot of the wall has also been painted this way and a large 'H' has been painted on the low brick wall, below the triangular hydrant sign on the railings. The building did not survive World War II and was subsequently demolished. The site is now part of Abingdon Street Gardens.
