Lion Brewery in Belvedere Road
View of the Lion Brewery on the corner of Belvedere Road and Sutton Street, South Bank. The view includes high brick walls with an arched gateway, presumably for vehicles. Buildings can be seen through the archway. Above it a signpost holder is present, along with a 'To Be Let' sign with Messrs. Clutton's contact details. Atop is a Coade stone lion, created by W.F. Woodington. To the left, a street sign for Sutton Street can be seen. Also known as the Red Lion Brewery, the building was designed by Francis Edwards, and built in 1836 by James Goding. At the time of this photograph the Lion Brewery Company had been taken over by Hoare & Co. four years previously, and continued to produce beer until a fire in 1931. The building then remained derelict until it was demolished in 1949 to make way for the Festival of Britain in 1951. Sutton Road has since been renamed Concert Hall Approach, and the area has been redeveloped. The golden lion at Twinkenham stadium is believed to be the sculpture in the view, painted as such in 1991 for the Rugby World Cup.
