View towards Pelham Street
View from the corner of Harrington Road, next to the National Provincial Bank, looking across at the shops in front of South Kensington underground station. Pelham Street and Old Brompton Road are on the right, and Thurloe Street is on the left. South Kensington underground station is Grade II listed; listing number 1392067. The shops include Merle boutique; Rosticceria, delicatessen specialists, with an ‘open on Sunday’ sign (which was quite rare in 1958); a restaurant and snack bar with a ‘Dring’s sausages’ van parked outside (this van can also be seen on image number 85746), The Brazilian Yerbama Co., selling Yerbama; ‘Life-preserving Tea’ from Parana in Brazil; and Lloyds Bank across the corner at Malvern Court. There are three zebra crossings with Belisha Beacons and tall, ornate lampposts. The sign for Cromwell Place is on the crossing on the left, where a lady in a fur coat and hat is walking towards the camera. Thurloe Street on the left has a London bus coming towards the camera and there are many pedestrians including men in hats and raincoats.
