XXVII—LITTLE GREEN STREET
LITTLE GREEN STREET, ELEVATION AND DETAILS OF BAYS BY A. E. GURNEY
This is quite the most interesting survival of the work of the late
18th-century after Grove Terrace and is noticeable for its varied bow-windows.
It contains on its north side seven houses. No. I is covered with advertisements. No.2 has a charming little three-sided bay to its ground-floor
room, projecting slightly, six panes wide, two panes to each face, and four
panes deep. No. 3 has been refaced but the ground-floor window appears
to be an old one. Nos. 4 and 5 are the best in the row, both have three faces
like No. 2, only slightly projecting and similarly proportioned, but above
them runs a full entablature with a delicately dentilled cornice which embraces
both windows and both doorways and forms one delightful composition.
The next two houses numbered 6 and 7 have similar bays but are not treated as
one complete composition. The door and window to both houses are treated
alike. There is, however, a modillioned cornice and a pair of very simple
shaped brackets to both doors. No. 8 is not so distinguished, but is a larger
structure. The back view from Highgate Road shows a charming variety of
mansard roofs. The street is illustrated on Plates 24 and 25 as well as on the
previous page (70).
