Trevor Square Area

Of the small area described in this chapter (fig. 28), the greater part comprises the well-preserved Regency development consisting lárgely of Trevor Square and Trevor Street. Subtly different in character are the early-Victorian houses of Trevor Place. To the south is the former Harrods depot, an early-twentieth-century interloper belonging with the commercial hurly-burly of Brompton Road.

Among a number of demolished buildings, much the most important was Smith & Baber's floorcloth factory of the 1820s, a substantial part of which remained until the 1970s. The story of the housing development now occupying the factory site, on the west side of Trevor Place, is bound up with that of South Lodge and is described in Chapter VII.
