|Details: The recent photos of Parsons Green prompted me to look into this location. Although closed in (about) 1987, the premises has remained largely the same as when it was used by London Transport. Shown here is an aerial view recently taken from Google. The long, grey-roofed building on the right is the main part of the works, with the yellow star marking the covered loading bay that appears in many photos due to it being close to the entrance. The string of buildings on the other side of the roadway were also used by LT, and included some more covered areas, the one marked with a blue star appearing in the next photo. The red star marks the main office building, located on Parsons Green Lane and visible in other photos. It is currently occupied by a variety of users, including a bridge playing club! I have left this photo wide to also include a location I did not previously know about. Marked with a pink star in the bottom left, this was a small yard that appears to have been used as an overflow parking area for LT lorries. On the corner of Whittingstall Road and Beaconsfield Walk, and adjacent to the District Line tracks, several photos previously published on LTSV are now thought to have been taken here (like this one, this one and this one added last week). Although only a couple of hundred yards from the main works, the direct route looks like it has only ever been a pedestrian walkway. Lorries would presumably therefore have had to travel via Fulham Road (across the top left corner of this photo). The yard appears to have been redeveloped in the 1990s, with a short row of 4 new houses built adjoining the 3 older ones between there and the junction with Lettice Street.|
