John and I were married in 1960 and we bought, or rather acquired a mortgage on 31 Princedale Road in 1961 for £5,760 plus another two thousand for updating plumbing and wiring, and installing central heating, a condition of our mortgage. It was the top of what we could afford.

We chose the neighbourhood by putting a compass point on John’s office in the City and drawing a reasonable travelling circle round it because we didn’t want him to commute. I had recently returned from university in Nigeria, where I was the only white undergraduate and where I had read a lot of African history in addition to the subject I was studying, and John was still recovering from being a prisoner-of-war of the Japanese in the Far East in WW2. This is why we rejected advice from all sorts of people not to move into an area where there had so recently been race riots. My instinct was that these had not originated in the West Indian community and John knew a lot about human suffering and bein

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 1950’s and 1960’s. 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 mum’s bus badge.

Happy times they were.

Princedale Road, W11

Princedale Road was formerly Princes Road.

Before the development of the Ladbroke Estate, almost the only building in the area was a large house just west of the road which was the “handsome pleasant seat” of the owner of the Norland Estate.

Benjamin Lewis Vulliamy had owned the Norland Estate. In September 1838, taking advantage of land price rises due to the possible coming of railways to the area, Vulliamy began discussions with William Kingdom, a building speculator who was probably already active in the development of Westbourne Terrace and Hyde Park Gardens, Paddington.

In the end, Kingdom did not purchase the Norland estate. In January 1839 he assigned the benefit of his agreement with Vulliamy to a solicitor, Charles Richardson, for £5,932. The circumstances of the sale are obscure, but it appears that Kingdom’s assignment to Richardson was in payment of a mortgage debt, possibly on Kingdom’s property in Paddington.

Richardson became the freehold owner of all fifty-two acres of the estate and the development of the Norland estate was to be his main concern for the next 12 years.

Princes Road (Princedale Road) was officially begun in 1841. Richardson first sold off plots on the "odd" side of the street that year to a succession of people. Numbers 9–13 and 27–33 to Charles Patch of Edgware Road, builder, 15–25 to Thomas Pool of Paddington, builder.

35-55 were similarly and varioously sold between 1844 and 1851 to George Warren (carpenter), Job Way (carman), William Thelwall (painter) and to Thomas Pool (builder).

Even numbers up to no. 40 were built between 1846 and 1851.

The Prince of Wales public house was built by James Emmins of Bayswater between 1844 and 1845. The Crown public house arrived in 1851 courtesy of James Watney and partner of the Stag Brewery, Pimlico.
