Walterton Road was the central road of a suburb which was originally proposed to called St. Peter’s Park.

No addresses have so far been added to Walterton Road, W9

St. Peter’s Park, the name, commemorated the lordship of Westminster Abbey, A few straight avenues leading from Harrow Road had been planned, although not yet built up: Walterton Road followed this plan though originally designated to be called St. Peter’s Road.

Walterton Road in the 1880s was described as a ‘dreary thoroughfare’, where small grey houses were approached by tall flights of steps and had bay windows, many with cards advertising services ‘from the letting of lodgings to the tuning of pianos’. Although the description was aimed at stressing the superiority of Bayswater, St. Peter’s Park in general retained a reputation for being dismal, or at least dull.
Subletting had led to deterioration throughout the area by the 1890s, although there was little real hardship. Houses were mostly of nine rooms and might be let to two or three families, often clerks, agents, or well paid artisans. Poverty was confined to the angle between Chippenham and Walterton Road.
There was some redevelopment after the Second World War. Abinger Mews replaced older houses at the northeast end of Walterton Road, behind which terraces in the triangle between Walterton, Chippenham, and Warlock Roads were to be cleared in 1982 by the GLC.

Post by Maria Russ: Middle Row Bus Garage

My mum worked as a Clippie out from Middle Row Bus Garage and was conductress to George Marsh Driver. They travel the City and out to Ruislip and Acton duiring the 1950ís and 1960ís. We moved to Langley and she joined Windsor Bus Garage and was on the Greenline buses after that. It was a real family of workers from Middle Row and it formed a part of my early years in London. I now live in New Zealand, but have happy memories of the early years of London Transport and Middle Row Garage. Still have mumís bus badge. Happy times they were.

Post by Julia elsdon: Shirland Mews, W9

I didnít come from Shirland Mews, but stayed there when my father was visiting friends, sometime in the mid to late forties. As I was only a very young child I donít remember too much. I seem to think there were the old stables or garages with the living accommodation above. My Mother came from Malvern Road which I think was near Shirland Mews. I remember a little old shop which had a "milk cow outside". So I was told, it was attached to the front of the shop and you put some money in and the milk would be dispensed into your container. Not too sure if it was still in use then. Just wonder if anyone else remembers it.yz5

Toni Mascolo obituary
Hairdresser who was the business brains behind the Toni & Guy empire he built up with his brother GaetanoToni Mascolo was not in hairdressing for fashion, fame or art. He expressed his creativity not in extreme cut or colouring but in a novel business structure through his family firm, Toni & Guy. From his teens, Mascolo, who has died aged 75, was his own accountant, business adviser and advertising director, with an immigrant’s willingness to work full-speed from 8am to 10pm six days a week and concoct hair lacquer in bulk from raw ingredients in the back room should there be an hour’s slack in trade.Mascolo understood from early on that the trade was descended from the guild system, where apprentices learned on the job, served time with a local master, then often split to found a new business. Its services were not reliable in standards or geographic spread. He introduced franchising, where every salon provided a brand-guaranteed level of service, but allowed the franchisee independence within a family. There are now almost 500 Toni & Guy salons in nearly 50 countries. Continue reading...

West Kilburn

West Kilburn is the westernmost slice of London W9, centered around Fernhead Road.

West Kilburn is a rather small part of London. Bravington Road forms the boundary of West Kilburn with its neighbour to the west - the Queens Park Estate.

To the north is Queen's Park station itself. Walterton Road and Saltram Crescent forms the eastern boundary with Harrow Road to the south.

Tall 19th century houses are the predominant feature in this area. Many have now been converted to flats.

The area houses two hitherto notorious estates - the Mozart and the South Kilburn in Brent.
