Things That Fall From Books #2: 145 King's Road




I often blog about things that fall out of the books that I spend my life cataloguing... These two postcards I thought were a particularly charming example. I cannot now remember what book they fell from except I know it was one which is now in the 'discard' pile to go to a charity shop or the local church.

These are two postcards both showing views of 145 King's Road in Chelsea, London when it was a bakers and confectioners (the verso of the two is the same). The interior shot in particular has a wonderful art nouveau atmosphere. The shop is now a flagship store for the clothing chain, Jaeger. Perhaps I shall see if they would like to buy these...
