George The Fourth Hotel on Brixton Hill
Looking south on the Brixton Hill Estate, Brixton, with 144 to 156 Brixton Hill in view. The George the Fourth Public House and Hotel with its elegant corner-turret at number 144, is recorded with its first licensee Henry Wright in 1825. Alterations to the building took place in the 1930s and it later became a concert and dance venue: Basement Jaxx held club nights here from 1994 and closed in 2012 to become a Tesco supermarket. A sign for Barclay Perkins brewery is outside. Next door are the Brixton Hill Motor and Engineering Works advertising motor repairs. An enclosed area by the pub has a sign for May and Philpot Architects and Surveyors, and bill posters are beneath. Ghost carts can be seen in the distance and tram lines are visible on the road. A hoarding with more adverts can be seen by the trees including one for Bovril. Lamp posts, a post box and iron railings feature.
