Interior of a house in Palace Gate
Interior view of 2 Palace Gate, Kensington, showing the first-floor north room which was being used as an office. There is a desk with papers and a typewriter on it; shelves to the left, a bag on the floor, and a calendar on the modern office partition. Another view of this room can be seen on image number 85796. In 1969 when the photo was taken, this building was the Pakistan High Commission Annexe. 2 Palace Gate is Grade II listed; listing number 1065933. It was designed in 1878 by P. C. Hardwick for the Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais. It has a Blue Plaque commemorating ‘Sir John Everett Millais (1829-1896) Painter, lived and died here’. The interior fitments date from the time it was built; the cornice moulding, the wooden parquet flooring, the large carved mirror and the marble fire surround. The mirror reflects the cornice moulding, several suspended fluorescent lights and a wall mounted electric heater. The fireplace has been boarded and a gas heater has been installed. On either side of the fireplace are the bell handles for summoning servants. To the left is an arched door with curved architrave. An exterior view of this building can be seen on image number 85807.
