The Hunt for 44/46 Kennington Road, SW1.


See also the old bike resource page here.

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. We didn't know where we were going so we headed off down Waterloo Rd, it wasn't long before we stumbled upon the 'The Cut' and the Evans shop there so we had a quick look around the showroom. There wasn't a lot to interest us 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. We 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 we finally arrived at Kennington Rd, luckily we were at 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.
