Buildings on Richmond Riverside
This view of Richmond's prominent riverside buildings was taken from Richmond Bridge before the extensive Heron Square and riverside development and restoration during the 1980s. It includes the old Palm Court Hotel and Heron House (early eighteenth century with later exensions by H Laxton, Grade II listed in 1950, listing number 1357681), and Tower House at 10-12 Bridge Street (also Laxton, Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1358055), now a 'Pitcher and Piano'. The boathouses at Richmond have a three-hundred-year association with boatbuilding, most recently in the fitting out of the Queen's Row Barge Gloriana for Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. Richmond Bridge, built in 1777 by James Paine and Kenton Couse and is the oldest bridge over the Thames within Greater London. It was Grade I listed in 1952, listing number 1180951. Just visible to the right of view is the Art Deco Odeon cinema in Hill Street, built 1930 by Julian Leathart and WR Grainer and is described as one of only three surving in Britain with 'atmospheric' interiors. It was Grade II listed in 1990, listing number 1254263. Located in the Richmond Riverside conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames, this is now a very popular leisure area with many places to relax and take refreshment, belied by this sparsely populated photograph.
