View of Palace Gate
Description
View of 3-15 Palace Gate, Kensington, looking south with number 1a just visible on the right. Number 1 is Grade II* listed, including the area railings; listing number 1066003. It can also be seen on image number 85752. The main terrace is listed as 3-15 Palace Gate and is a Grade II 1860s white stucco terrace; listing number 1066004. In 1975 when this photograph was taken, the houses were numbered without the number 13, i.e. 11 is next to 15, and the house to the left of 15 was probably 15a. The numbers are painted on the columns. This reflects the British superstition that the number 13 is considered unlucky. The houses today are numbered 3-15 and include number 13. The porches have stone columns with stone balustrades at first-floor level and iron railings at pavement level. The attic rooms have oval shaped windows. Number 3 has a flagpole over the front door and there are pictures or posters inside the second-floor windows of number 3. There are parking meters on the pavement and a pillar box (letter box) can be seen in front of number 17 in the distance; a ‘for sale’ board can be seen at ground level.
