Shops on Hill Street
This view shows part of a terrace of early-nineteenth century shop buildings that once stood on the corner of Hill Street and Bridge Street in Richmond, known as Royal Terrace. The jeweller WALTER F JARVIS, at number 29, has a traditional rusticated ground-floor shop front and ornate iron railings to its single first-floor window. The rest have twentieth-century ground floors, but the painted brick frontages on the two upper floors show hints of former shops’ painted advertising, including AMERICAN ICE CREAM, HIGH CLASS CHOCOLATE AND CONFECTIONERY, and HAIRDRESSERS. Shops shown are ROWE, WALTER F JARVIS, the RICHMOND ROTARY CLUB CHARITY SHOP, also stating its 50th ANNIVERSARY PROJECT, the RICHMOND SCHOONER fish and chop shop and restaurant, and part of the WIMPEY BAR, which occupied numbers 21 and 23 on the corner of Heron Court. 23 Hill Street was at one time the Royal Hotel. The entire terrace was demolished in the 1980s and replaced with Quinlan Terry’s Richmond Riverside development, incorporating Heron Place. Just visible to the left of view across Bridge Street is the former King’s Head Hotel, an eighteenth-century inn with early-to-mid nineteenth century alterations, that was Grade II listed in 1983 as Christies, 1 Hill Rise; listing number: 1065431. It is now Bill’s Richmond restaurant. A motion-blurred Mini is shown driving towards the junction and a group of pedestrians are shown walking past the fish and chip restaurant.
