Kensington

I walked through the leafier parts of Kensington west from the Natural History Museum:-

Through squares I scarcely know, Queen’s Gate Gardens, Cornwall Gardens, a market garden until the 1860s, with its grand French Renaissance apartment blocks at the end:-

Lexham Gardens:-

Stratford Studios:-

Abingdon Road (I think):-

To Edwardes Square, named after the family of Lord Kensington who sold the land to a developer Louis Leon Changeur in 1811:-

It was the first day when I experienced people not willing to shake hands, for fear of the plague.
