A view of the side and rear of 22 Carlisle Place, Westminster, a four-storey Victorian office building with basement (offices since the 1960s) later named Manning House at as seen from Francis Street, Pimlico. The building which was built as the Guardsmen' Institute in c1867 by H. A. Darbishire shows elements of the Victorian Italianate architectural style with modern twentieth-century alterations visible on the top floor of the building. The building was used as the palace of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster between 1873 and 1901. Just about visible on the corner of the building by the turning into Carlisle Place on the right of Manning House is a plaque which was erected by the London County Council in 1914 to commemorate the fact that Cardinal Manning once lived at Manning House. The view looks towards Manning House with the back of the building visible in King's Scholars' Passage, Westminster through the gates on the left of the photograph. On the corner of the turning into Carlisle Place on the right is Cardinal Mansions a seven-storey (including basement) late Victorian mansion block. Features in the photograph include flower boxes on the windowsills of the ground floor windows of Manning House and the names of the businesses occupying the building attached to its side. In the street is a traditional styled lamppost, the back of a road sign and various vehicles can be seen parked in King's Scholars' Passage with parked motorbikes visible on the corner of Manning House in Francis Street by the turning into Carlisle Place. Also in the scene can be seen a lone pedestrian walking down King's Scholars' Passage. Some alterations and additions have since been made to the buildings.
