Knightsbridge "Pont Street" Dutch

P1020463

Contemplating these Victorian elevations they are rather more convincingly "dutch" then their counterparts situated not so far in Pont Street (hence the nickname). This is because the building plot alocated to derive maximum profit in a prime location, in a fashionable commercial avenue was to be very narrow, enough to allow for three windows. The result is very Amsterdamesque with different coloured styles crowded together, squeezed against each other., in a riot of baroque pediments..
