At the turn of the present century, Mr Edwin Watts occupied No 1 London Road on the west side at the corner of Cheapside. The ground floor was used for six small lock-up shops, where the side garden had been. To replace this, Mr Watts contrived a garden with small ornamental pool on the flat roof over the shops. This photograph is of the garden, north-east to buildings beyond Queen’s Place, in London Road.
