Junction of King's Road and Sydney Street
View from the junction of King's Road and Sydney Street of the front elevations of 244-250 King's Road, Chelsea, which at the time of the photograph was the original site of the Chelsea Register Office. Notable marriages here include Bessie Wallis Warfield who married her second husband Ernest Simpson, becoming Mrs Wallis Simpson. Judy Garland also got married here in 1969. This register office continued on this site until 1978 when it moved to new premises, across the road in the Chelsea Old Town Hall. Previously the building located at 244-250 had been offices of the Board of Guardians built in 1883. Directly behind these offices were the buildings that formed the Chelsea Workhouse and the side elevation of the aged and infirm women's block in Sydney Street can also be seen. Old fashioned striped traffic lights are visible and a number of people are waiting at the bus stop in Sydney Street.
