No. 17 Watergate Street, Deptford.

I found this old photo of No. 17 Watergate Street. Taking a closer look at the door bracket carvings, scroll work and cherubs, one cant help but notice the similarity to the surviving original door brackets in Albury Street.

I think this is also the house in Watergate Street drawn by Geoffrey Fletcher.

Hi Shipwrights,

I know the door drawn in Fletcher's "The London Nobody Knows" is No 31 Albury Street..but did he draw another in Watergate Street?

You are right Andy I was thinking of this one from 1926.

Well I never SP, your right. Ive blown the painting up and I'm sure its the same house. You can just make out the detail of the Cherubs. Well spotted.
