Tolstoy, seems like your Flickr photo is set to private, so at least I can't see it, but here is Google Maps link to the houses:
I hope the link works, did not find a way of linking directly to the Street view there. (and why has nobody told Google we are not in Camberwell?)
Now I hope my memory does not fail me, but as these properties back up to the railway arches that are now the night club called The Arches
, I think one of those doors was also a sort of back door to the club once? I used to work there occasionally when it was run by a bunch of South Africans as a rugby/sports bar and the offices were somehow right behind the Union Street
facade. There were also loads of the bar staff living there as well, would have been like the first floor on Union Street
. Now that scaffolding looks older than the 9 years I am talking about, so not sure when the said fire would have been or whether all the houses are connected from the back. I have been wondering whethere the club would not have use for that extra bit, then again it might not be part of their lease and suppose it is up to Network Rail (is it no longer Spacia?) to do the work needed.
