7 Royal Square


The date of this photograph is uncertain. It has been suggested that it was taken as early as 1852. That would explain why no records have been found in almanac directories of A La Civette, the business on the ground floor of the building on the left

The south-west corner of the Royal Square in 1880. The numbering of properties is uncertain, but we believe that the four buildings in the terrace are, from left to right, Nos 6, 7 and 8, and the Grand Hotel du Calvados, which was listed in Church Street, its main entrance having been on the corner. The United Club building on the right of the image is now shown as No 10 Royal Square, which begs the question of where No 9 was located. It is possible that the hotel on the corner was listed in the Royal Square in some almanac directories. There are certainly census records for No 9

Notes and references

  1. There is some confusion over numbers in this corner of the square. Late 19th century almanacs show the United Club at No 7. We believe that this was where the club started out, before moving to No 10, when it was rebuilt in the 1930s
