Interior of a house in Palace Gate
Description
Interior view of 2 Palace Gate, Kensington, showing the studio on the first floor which was being used as an office. There are several desks, filing cabinets, paperwork, and a covered typewriter on the desk on the left in front of the sign ‘ADMIN WING’. A black umbrella is hanging beside it. Two Bakelite rotary telephones are on the desk in the foreground and there is a wall mounted electric heater; a suspended fluorescent light; and two spherical lights. 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 black corner pillars, the arched wooden door and alcove; and the large arched mirror which reflects part of the ceiling seen on image number 85801. An exterior view of this building can be seen on image number 85807.
