The Hunt for 44/46 Kennington Road, SW1.

8.10.06

On the way back from the bike show at the Excel exhibition centre I spotted that the train went through Waterloo tube station and I thought it would be a good idea to have a go at finding the original home of F.W. Evans Cycles - 44/46 Kennington Road. Evans moved to their new address at 'The Cut' in the late 70's. I didn't know where I was going so I headed off down Waterloo Rd, it wasn't long before I stumbled upon the 'The Cut' and the Evans shop there so I had a quick look around the showroom. There wasn't a lot to interest me here so we headed off in no particular direction still looking for Kennington Rd. We decided that London was a big city and that we had better ask for directions. I had plenty of freindly advise as to where to go and after passing the Imperial War Museum and the house where Captain Bligh used to live I finally arrived at Kennington Rd, luckily I was at the right end of the road and after a bit of detective work I was busy taking photographs of numbers 44/46 which are now a pharmacy.
