Pimlico Pimlico Glasgow Terrace.  

Can't help you with pictures Hayley, sorry, but as a young lad just after the second world war I would visit my Aunt and Uncle who lived at 127 Lupus Street which if I remember correctly was between Glamorgam Road and Glasgow Terrace. Their flat was also demolished to make way for Churchill Gardens where they were rehoused. As Kids we would walk through Glasgow Terrace to get down to the River Thames and I suspect make a nuisance of ourselves, having said that I would spend hours watching the cranes unloading coal for Battersee power station. brian

Pimlico Pimlico Boundary  

Pimlico isn't as big as some seem to think. I grew up there and for us Pimlico finished at Vauxhall Bridge Road and everything the other side was 'Westminster proper'. Indeed when you crossed the 'tramlines', the local name for Vauxhall Bridge Road, you were left in no doubt (especially by other kids) that you had left your 'manor'.

For us, Pimlico was bounded by the Thames, Vauxhall Bridge Road, Buckingham Palace Road and Chelsea Bridge Road. And most older Pimlicoans would remind those in Pimlico Road that it leads to but isn't in Pimlico; it's in South Belgravia.

There was a time when those living in Pimlico kept quiet about it and said they lived in Victoria or Westminster. Today it seems to be fashionable to live there and its boundaries are being stretched; fair enough. However, fashionable or not, it's still London's finest village.

Pimlico Pimlico boundary  

I have an original coloured print from the mid C19th that shows the first row of Belgrave Square houses newly built on the East side, presumably they were for courtiers as it was closest to Buckingham Palace.
The print is inscribed: Pimlico, Belgrave Square.
All that has happened is that the word Belgravia superseded the word Pimlico.

Pimlico Do you have a flat to sell?  

Hi. I'm looking for a flat in Pimlico up to approx £300000. If you're thinking of selling, I'd love to hear from you. Selling privately (without estate agents) can make life easier and much cheaper. I need one bedroom and if it has outside space, that would be great. Thanks very much.

Pimlico Classic Car Rentals, Pimlico - 1970s  

Hi - I hope this is the place! I've gone to various websites and companies and have a partial answer. When I was very small, in the late 1970s, I remember a car overhanging the top of a building on the east of the tracks a couple of minutes (by train) out of Waterloo Station in a spot that would have been impossible to get a vehicle without a crane. It's since been established this was Classic Car Rentals, and the building is where Pimlico Plumbers have been since 2005. Has anyone got photos of the car (or cars - I seem to remember it got changed and eventually ruined by graffiti), dates or any information at all? It's proven surprisingly difficult and I've never forgotten it.

Pimlico Whats Pimlico Academy Like?  

My friend is a fantastic teacher and is thinking about applying for a job at Pimlico academy - she wants to know what it's like. I've only just moved to the area, but the kids seem pretty well behaved to me so far! Do any locals have an opinion on the school?

Pimlico Pimlico Academy  

Living fairly near to the school I notice that the children seem much better behaved and less scruffy when they hit the streets at the end of the school day. This is may be due to the no compromise attitude of the Head who made it abundantly clear at a pre-opening meeting with local residents that things were about to change for the better. My own feeling is that if you put children in modern, clean decent surroundings and treat them like ordinary rational human beings they respond well.

Pimlico Glamorgan Street  

My grandmother lived at no 2 Glamorgan Street, bottom half of the house. The top half of the house was a family called the Terrys had two boys Terry and Peter and later i think two daughters. In the next door house the top half of the house was a Mrs Dolly Hedley my nan's friend and across from my nan's house was the Rocky's or we always knew the dad as Mr Rocky. It was demolished in around 1960/1 and was opposite cornerwise to Sutherland Street and Lupus Street.

Pimlico To michael guihen  

I remember mrs ward, I was born in claverton st in 1963 and mrs ward lived on the corner of lupus st and claverton st next to the big open garden where the war damaged houses had been knocked down, just round from sid the news seller, I remember mrs ward as being a nice lady with black hair she kept in a pony tail, she also had a parrot that we could see when we passed her basement, but the best memory I have of her is the lovely home made bread pudding she used to give to us kids, you've brougth back great memories michael, thanks for that.
