narrow open well cut bracket string stair cases with turned balusters,
cornices, dadoes and good original chimneypieces, some with good cast
iron basket grates. Portions of Nos. 9-13, which now connect
internally, retain unusual fittings and decoration carried out between
1947 and 1960 for Architectural Press under the direction of H.de C.
Hastings, notably 'The Bride of Denmark', a sequence of neo-Victorian
pub interiors in the basement. In the yard of No.9, a lead water
cistern bearing the date 1774 and the initials of Christ's Hospital,
the freeholders of the terrace. This part of the street was originally
named Park Street and separated by a wall from the western part called
Queen Square. Part of an exceptional group of late C18 and Queen Anne
houses.
