Hi Heathite, long time no see. I was getting worried Wave In the photo, the white building behind the bridge on the left is number 46, so 45 was just before that. The bridge is closer still. Obviously by the time they took the photo they owned quite a large block of properties between Hertford Street and Warwick Lane. Large blocks like that were often given quite odd numbers. Check out the original Fire insurance Maps and compare with Rob's version. See how stuff moves about. Rob's 1950 version of the Fire Insurance map

On post 21 pic the bridge has an Apex roof but on post 23 no sign of an Apex. Even from the different position of camera shot there should be evidence of the sloping roof line?

I thought the “slope” was actually the roof of the “Royal Mail” building beyond.

All of Court 2 and the bit fronting it on Warwick Lane was demolished to build the block on the right hand side of the photo.

Hi MR, I don’t why but I really studied that pic and the slope of the building behind should be cut off square to the wall where the bridge is. If you look closely the slope seems to go up the wall? Thumbs up

The slope in #21 is parallel to the angle of the roof in both #22 and #23
