Title
Buildings in The Green and Paved Court
Description
This view shows the buildings at the southern corner of Richmond Green, including The Princes Head at numbers 27-28 The Green and Paved Court, all located in the Richmond Green conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. From left to right, number 26 The Green, seen here trading as Richmond Pet Shop, is believed to have been built c1901 and is listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit. The driveway serves Golden Court, then beyond is The Princes Head Pub. Originally called The Duke's Head, this eighteenth-century pub was rebuilt c1900 and owned by a number of famous cricketers, notably the Surrey, Somerset and England fast bowler Thomas Richardson (1870-1912). It is also listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit and still bears the Fuller Smith & Turner Chiswick Ales and Stouts lettering, part of which can be seen in this view. Paved Court is a lane between The Green and King Street. Some of the buildings date back to the late seventeenth century or early Georgian period and are listed by Historic England. For example, the health food shop at number 1 with the distinctive bowed window is of the early eighteenth century and Grade II listed in 1968 as Health Food Stores, listing number 1357718. It forms part of the return of number 29 The Green, seen here as Walter C Joel & Co, this corner building being of eighteenth century with a nineteenth-century shop front, Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1357769. Number 30 is of the mid-eighteenth century and was Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1065309. Since this photograph was taken, the balcony and porch have been removed and other extensive work done to restore its original appearance. Part of number 31 is also in view, this building being four windows wide. It is thought to be late eighteenth century and was Grade II listed in 1950, listing number 1065310. The two telephone boxes in front of these houses were Grade II listed in 1990 as Pair of K6 Telephone Kiosks, listing number 1261332. Designed by Sir Giles Scott in 1935, over 60,000 of these iconic kiosks were produced and installed throughout Britain. The long photographic exposure time has made some of the pedestrians indistinct, but a man with glasses can be seen sitting in a chair in front of the pub, and a woman is also visible window browsing at Walter C Joel's shop. A moped can also be seen parked near the telephone boxes and one of the adjacent litter bins appears to have been bent over on its stand. Since this photograph was taken, three trees have been planted around the telephone boxes and have grown above roofline height.
