There's a small (postage stamp-sized) picture of Tenison Street being demolished dated 30 December 1948 in a new book about the South Bank Centre (including the Festival of Britain) called A Festival on the River.

probably years too late for your query, I'm researching my grandfather through the electoral rolls. In 1926 he lived at 28 Tenison Street,you ask what this address was, it appears to be a street of multiple occupance with up to five different names appearing at most numbers from 5 through to 44. Grandfather was a builder by trade. can e-mail you a copy of the electoroal roll I have if you like - it is for 1926 but it might be of use just as an example of the occupancy.

little late. I''m rreading the history of THE Titanic. There were a lot of Italian & French Waiters working in THE la carte restaurant on this ship. They were worked first (i understand) in the Ritz and went to THE Titanic working & paid by Mr. Gatti. I copied the name and person lived on nr 27. text:Name: Sig. Jean/Javier Mouros
Age: 20 years
Marital Status: Single.
Last Residence: at 27 Tenison Street, Waterloo London London England
Occupation: Assistant Waiter
A la Carte crew
First Embarked: Southampton
Mr Jean Monoros, 20, was born in Spain.
When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 6th April, 1912, his address was 27 Tenison St., Waterloo, S.C., London. The Titanic was his first ship. As a member of the la carte restaurant he was employed and therefore paid by Mr Gatti.

I've been doing some research into my father's family which lived in Tenison Street in the 1910's and came across this thread so I thought I'd add some information which may be helpful to whoever might be interested in this part of the SE history.

There's a long article here about Tenison Street with photos dating from after the demolition :

AND a photo of Tenison Street from 1930 - BEFORE the demolition ! :

Hope you enjoy !
