Photograph of Earl's Court farm in 1867

Earl's Court farm as it was in the 1860s. This was one of the last areas of southern Kensington to be developed. The farm, under several generations of the Hutchins family, had been a very successful arable farm and market garden. Mr Alloway, a market gardener, took over in 1844 and can be seen here wearing a bowler hat with some of his workers including Mr Goddard and Mr Ives. Today it is the site of Earl's Court station.
