The Kings Head pub and shops on Hill Rise
This view shows the terrace of shops buildings on Hill Rise and the Kings Head public house on the corner of Bridge Street in the Richmond Hill conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. The Kings Head, shown with the Watneys red barrel sign of the time, was formerly the King’s Head Hotel, an eighteenth-century inn with early-to-mid-nineteenth century alterations. Grade II listed in 1983 as Christies, 1 Hill Rise; listing number: 1065431. Bill’s Richmond restaurant now occupies the lower floors, and the first floor forms part of the Viva night club at 3 Hill Rise. The terrace of three-storey shops shown at 3-17 Hill rise are also eighteenth-century and were Grade II listed at the same time; listing number: 1357707. Names shown on the hoardings above the shopfronts include DOLPHIN HOUSE, SMARTIES, TEA & COFFEE CO., RENDEZVOUS RESTAURANT and MAYFLOWER. Cars shown waiting at the traffic lights include a BMC 1100, and Ford Cortina MkIII, a Mini Clubman, and a Peugeot 504. A man wearing a shirt and flared trousers is shown walking by the Kings Head, while an older man with a dog to the left of view looks down the road.
