View of Barnes Bridge and The Terrace
This photograph shows Barnes Bridge, The Terrace, and some of the houses overlooking the River Thames at Barnes, as viewed from near Ye White Hart public house to the western upstream side of the bridge. Barnes Railway Bridge was constructed by Joseph Locke and J.E. Errington between 1846-49, and its downstream side was extended in 1891-95. It was Grade II listed in 1983; listing number 1080861. The white three-storey building with the prominent bay is number 26 The Terrace, which suffered catastophic collapse during basement extension work in 2015. Said to be one of the earliest buildings in the Barnes Green consevation area of Richmond upon Thames, it is believed to have been built in the late eighteenth century and was listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit. Ebenzer Cobb Morley, often said to be the father of Association Football, had lived there. To its right, number 27 with the balconies, also locally listed, was in 1812 the scene of the murder of its residents Louis-Alexandre de Launay and his wife the soprano Madame Saint-Huberty by their servant Lorenzo, who shot himself dead at the scene. Obscured in this view by trees, number 28 is an eighteenth-century three-storey brick house that was Grade II listed in 1951; listing number 125886. And just visible to the right of picture is the front extension of number 30, also Grade II listed in 1951; listing number 1252959. Sailing upstream is an unidentified paddle steamboat with its decks full of passengers. Other smaller water craft are also visible, as are two horsedrawn carriages passing eachother by in the distance, and a man and two boys can be seen taking in the scene on the sloping embankment.
