    Brixton Hatter: Shaving Saloon - Stockwell Green? I would love to know the history behind that building. The sign is probably something of a giveaway...

    Yeah… it was a ropey old building but it (and the 'shaving saloon' sign) seems to have been restored recently.

    The late lamented George IV at corner of Waterworks Road and Brixton Hill.

    But didn't there used to be a seagull on top of the weathervane?

    Lambeth Town Hall - door in Acre Lane elevation, seven bays along where the original Septimus Warwick and H Austen Hall building morphs into the Town Hall extension/Assembly Hall block.

    Thank God I Googled - I first thought that door was part of the original building, but in fact Warwick and Hall's winning design of 1905 wasn't completed. The side facing Acre Lane would have looked a lot more like Hampon Court than what is there now.
