In the Kings Road of to-day, one would search in vain for any building looking like this. It was in fact, three separate houses, known as 1, 2 and 3, Oriental Terrace, designed by Amon Henry Wilds, and built about 1827/9. This photograph, printed recently from an old waxed paper negative, must have been taken about 1860. By the mid-1860's all three houses were occupied as lodging houses by T.H.King, whose name was taken by the later King's Hotel. At this time the entire front facade was altered. In no other of my many photographs of Kings Road are these buildings seen in this form.
