View of Palace Gate
Description
View of 15-15a Palace Gate, Kensington. These houses are part of 3-15 Palace Gate; an 1860s white stucco terrace which is Grade II listed; 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 15 has a boot scraper to the right of the front door and a parking meter is on the pavement. There are circular ‘coal hole’ covers on the pavement where coal could be delivered directly into cellar coal stores under the pavement. Three pigeons are roosting on the decorative detailing under the eaves of the house on the left.
