Soho Street

Soho Street, which until 1884 was known as Charles Street, leads from Soho Square to Oxford Street. It first appears by name in the ratebooks in 1682. In 1720 Strype described it as 'a Place of no Great Note for Inhabitants'. (ref. 16) It was until comparatively recently lined with four-storey houses, each two windows wide. Nos. 3 and 4 probably date from the early eighteenth century.
