Buildings in Catherine Street and York Street
A view of the front elevations of terraced buildings in Catherine Street and York Street, Covent Garden, including the offices of The Stage, the newspaper of the performing arts. A vertical sign on the rounded corner of 16 York Street reads: "The Stage, largest circulation of all papers devoted to the dramatic and musical professions". Buildings in both streets have about three storeys above the ground floor offices and shops. Number 15 York Street is a flower merchant but an estate agent's sign offers upper floors to let. Two long ladders are leaning against the front elevation of number 13. The ground floor of number 17 Catherine Street carries a sign for The Entracte and another offering offices to let. Number 19 is a coffee and cocoa dealer. Number 21 is a fruit and flower dealer and number 23 is The Opera Tavern, with a brewer's dray loaded with beer barrels standing outside. Many men and boys can be seen at the street corner. The buildings still exist. Dating from 1729, number 15 Tavistock Street (formerly 13 York Street) was Grade II listed in 1970; listing number 1066228. The lamp standard at the street corner in the photograph is one of seven dating from the late nineteenth century and 1910 which were Grade II listed in 1987; listing number 1066329.
