This house, on the west side of Queen Street, belongs to the late Georgian period. It has no special point of interest beyond its boldly projecting bay-window on the first floor, which overhangs the footway. It may be remarked that this type of window, fitted with sashes, though not uncommon in the suburban parishes of London and many county towns, is yet more particularly noticeable in Hammersmith, and is to be met with among many houses contemporary with the building and others which are later in date. When once introduced its obvious advantages would no doubt lead to its repetition in a given neighbourhood, and it is a matter of regret that the severity of the present building laws have banished these very picturesque features from our modern buildings.
