House in Carlton Gardens
A view of the front of 3 Carlton Gardens, St James's. A five-storey house built c1828 designed by Decimus Burton and which is Grade II* listed, list number 1066349. During the Second World War, the property was home to Charles de Gaulle and his private office was also based there. To the left of the house is wooden hoarding which covers part of the bay windows of number 4 Carlton Gardens, which was being demolished at the time the photo was taken. Number 4 Carlton Gardens was once the home of former Prime Ministers Lord Palmerston between 1846-1855, and Arthur Balfour from 1874-1897. A new number 4 Carlton Gardens was built on the site in 1933, and this was also used as the headquarters of Charles de Gaulle and the French government during the Second World War. Outside number 3 is a Rolls Royce Phantom. On the left is a wooden storage hut, a saw by a plank of wood next to a sheet of tarpaulin, and some oil lanterns. Carlton Gardens takes its name from Carlton House, the home of George IV which once stood in the area.
