Paddington Green neighbors

Posted by Matt Kuhns on May 1, 2013

Further developing the theme of “kind correspondents send me images relating to Ignatius Pollaky and/or of significant locations in detective history that I failed to visit myself when recently in London…” I recently received a pointer to this interesting image.

19th century illustration of Paddington Green

It says “Preissnitz House, Paddington Green, London, W”

Why is this interesting? Well, apparently the address of Richard Metcalfe’s public baths was 11 Paddington Green…

So presumably we know now a little more about the scenery which would have greeted a notable neighbor of Mr. Metcalfe’s as he came and went pursuing discreet inquiries…

Thanks to my (also discreet) correspondent for the tip!
