... carried the West London Extension Railway across the Thames.

This is Grosvenor Bridge, known as Victoria Bridge when first opened.

When Thomas Cubitt developed Pimlico for the Grosvenor estate he insisted that the first building in any residential district should be a public house and these should be built on street corners. At the time he was also engaged in supplying the plumbing for Queen Victoria's Balmoral Castle. This pub, built to his specification, is named not the Royal Flush but the Balmoral Castle.

The Stanley Arms public house was, like nearby Stanley Street (now Alderney Street), named after the family which owned some of the land in this area. The land was inherited from Hans Sloane, through marriage. Most but not all of the land in Pimlico was owned by the Grosvenor family until death duties and a refocusing of efforts caused them to sell it off by 1953.

This is the old Chelsea Suspension Bridge, 1858 - 1935. It looked like the present Hammersmith Bridge.

There are four dock entrances along this stretch of the embankment from Vauxhall Bridge to Grosvenor Railway Bridge, indicating Pimlico's industrial past. Grosvenor Road was constructed as part of Bazalgette's intercepting sewers project after the docks were built. The docks are now filled in but the entrances remain as gaps in the embankment, and Grosvenor Road spans these entrances in a series of short bridges.

The pump house and adjacent boiler house of the Southwark and Vauxhall Waterworks which supplied domestic water drawn from the Thames until 1855. The pump house is still (Feb 2014) standing, dwarfed by Battersea Power Station and more recent building developments.

This outline of a circular structure shows the former location of a reservoir of the Vauxhall and Southwark Water Company which supplied drinking water from the adjacent Thames until 1855 when the practice became illegal. After this date water was drawn from a point above the tidal reach in order to reduce deaths from cholera and other diseases.
