Shop buildings on Hill Rise
This view shows two shop buildings of individual character at the foot of Hill Rise in the Richmond Hill conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. 6 Hill Rise, shown as Rossi’s café, is a single-storey extension to an early-eighteenth century house that was Grade II listed in 1983; listing number: 1193789. Its bowed firs- floor frontage is hidden by the two-storey shop at number 8. Rossi’s appears to have a pergola and ranch-style boards indicating use as a balcony, but these have since been removed. Number 8 is shown as Café Continental Restaurant. Although it is of traditional appearance, it appears to be unlisted. Just visible to the right is the ornate console of 10 Hill Rise, shown trading as The Ivy, its fine classical detail including a face and an urn, possibly dating from around 1900. Just visible to the left is the entrance to H.DEACON & SON florists and nurserymen, now occupied by Nando’s at 2-4 Hill Rise. The pavement in front of the shops has since been widened and traditional iron railings now extend from outside 6 Hill Rise to numbers 12-14, where it splits away from the start of Petersham Road. Also shown beyond H. Deacon & Son is part of the flanking wall and green tiled roof of the Odeon Cinema in Hill Street, designed by Julian Leathart and W. R. Grainger in the Art Deco style. Opened in 1930 as the Richmond Kinema, and Grade II listed in 1990; listing number: 1254263, it is still operating as a cinema today; one of only three surviving cinemas in Britain built with Atmospheric-style interiors, this one modelled as a seventeenth-century Spanish courtyard.
