The next part of Brixton Road is called Glenshaw Mansions and was once home to Charlie Chaplin (he lived in number 15 with his brother Sydney from 1906 to 1912) and is the birthplace of comedian Max Wall (number 37).

It appears that Glenshaw Mansions was built somewhere between 1898 and 1903 and the late appearance of this block has meant that in order to list the businesses shown in Kelly’s Directories from 1881 to 1928 I have had to do this bit of the street in two parts.

Before Glenshaw Mansions was built there was an altogether different block of shops on this spot. I have been unable to find any photographs and the changes between business type were minimal from year to year so I have not covered as many separate Kelly’s entries. For details of the occupants of this part of the street from 1881 to 1898 please follow the link at the bottom of the page.
