Number 22 Brixton Road in Kelly’s Directories 1881 to 1928

Number 22 can be seen at the centre of this modern photograph.

There is a little paragraph about this property and it’s neighbour over on British History Online it says…

‘Nos. 22 and 24 Brixton Road Formerly Nos. 28 and 30 Brixton Road, previously Nos. 6 and 7 Spencer Place: In 1802 a building lease of the land on which these houses stand was granted to William Broadhurst, (ref. 2) who also built No. 5 Prima Road. They are a pair of modest, stock brick houses of three storeys, each two windows wide. Single storey extensions, now altered, contain the round-headed doorways, that to No. 22 having a reeded stucco architrave. The windows have segmental heads and lattice pattern iron guards on the first floor. No. 24 has an attic in a mansard roof and No. 22 has been extended to the side.’

The property appears to have alternated between being a business and residential premises. The years on the chart below that have a / in them indicate when the property was not a business.
