Two Kensingtons

Two views (below) from the same standpoint separated by 40 years. The first looks west along High Street Kensington and dates from 1860.

The same scene 40-or-so years on (below) features the original John Barker’s department store in the left foreground of the photograph.

For a third view of Kensington, join the Old Kensington London Walk this Thursday at 2.00 p.m.


A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
