Corner of Lawrence Street before the building of Carlyle Mansions in 1882 by J Crowther

This picture shows the old buildings at the river end of Lawrence Street before the construction of Carlyle Mansions. The print appeared in The Sphere on 18 December 1926. The Thames Coffee House, the Cricketers and several local shops occupied the site. Many old inns, shops and businesses were demolished during and after the completion of the Chelsea Embankment. Mansion blocks and large private houses replaced them.
