View of Castelnau
Castlenau is an avenue which connects Barnes with Hammersmith Bridge in the conservation area of the same name in Richmond-upon-Thames. This view was taken near Holy Trinity Church and shows the row of shop buildings numbers 185-201 on the west side of the avenue, and the row of villas at numbers 164-192 on the east side, where Trinity Church Road is also in view. A brick perimeter wall has since been built to the front and side of these houses. The pub beyond the end of the row of shops is the Boileau Arms, which like the name of the avenue commemorates the Huguenot family from Castelnau-Valence that settled in north Barnes and played a significant part in the area's development. The pub is now the Bright Horizons Day Nursery and Preschool. Most of these buildings are listed locally as Buildings of Townscape Merit. Part of one of Hammersmith Bridge's suspension towers can be ssen in the background. The period-style ornate street lamps are believed to be still in use. A few indistinct pedestrians can be seen as well as a number of vehicles including two Routemaster buses, one certainly a Number 72 heading towards Hammersmith Broadway, a Bedford 'United Carriers' lorry, a London Hackney Carriage, a BMC 1100, and a two-door Vauxhall Victor.
