Unless Roland is a particularly patient lurker it might make more sense to e-mail him (or pop into the pub!).
I think that was his one and only post (at least under that guise!)
PS He might not want to know the history. Although Charles Booth's poverty map
shows most of the houses in Stamford Street
as being occupied by those who are "Fairly Comfortable. Good ordinary earnings", Booth's survey notebook for May 1899 states:
Stamford St (3 1/2 st(oreys) + attic: great many prostitutes living here: hotels are places of accomodation: some are little more than brothels; girls live in them, walk out & bring men back to them: there have not been so many foreign prostitutes since the 'act against (?) 'The most disreputable hotels are west of Waterloo Road
, but some almost as bad E of it.
