Peter Jones department store in Cadogan Gardens
A view of Peter Jones, Cadogan Gardens, Chelsea. The department store, which occupies an entire island site on the west side of Sloane Square, was built between 1932 and 1936 to designs by William Crabtree of the firm of Slater, Crabtree and Moberly. The building is the first modern-movement use of the glass curtain wall in Britain and is now a Grade II listed building. Three workmen can be seen resting on or near a skip with the name Truckel on it and two electrical wire drums. Parked cars include a Volkswagen Beetle and an Austin A55 pickup car also called a half-ton van. Number 25 Cadogan Gardens can be seen which is now incorporated into the store. The store completed a lengthy refurbishment by John McAslan and Partners in 2004 and a third floor has been added to the lower part of the store which otherwise is six-storey.
