TQ4470 : Royal Parade

taken 8 years ago, near to Chislehurst, Bromley, Great Britain

Royal Parade
Royal Parade
Built in the 1860s, it was named Royal Parade in the 1870s, not because of Queen Victoria but because of its connection with Napoleon III whose family moved into nearby Camden Place in 1870 (hence the 1870 alongside the words Royal Parade along the top of the building here). The family moved there following Napoleon's defeat and capture in the Battle of Sedan and subsequent removal as Emperor, with the deposed Emperor himself moving there in exile in 1871.
