ARMY & NAVY STORES

THE ROYAL ARMY CLOTHING FACTORY, PIMLICO

began as a co-operative society, The Army & Navy Co-operative Society, formed in 1871 by a group of army and navy officers. The intention was to supply 'articles of domestic consumption and general use to its members at the lowest remunerative rates'. The store opened on 15th February 1872 for the sale of groceries and expanded to include goods as diverse as drapery, drugs, fancy goods and guns. Items useful to the military man such as campaign furniture and sporting goods were also supplied.

was established in Pimlico in 1857 to manufacture clothing for the Army and followed on from the successful introduction of the Army Clothing Department in 1855. Prior to its formation, the clothing for the infantry and cavalry was supplied by the Colonels of the Regiments through their Regimental Agents. This allowed large profits for the Colonels, and misery to exploited garment workers.

The 1833 report on Army and Navy noted that 105 Colonels were paid £192,000, and profited by £63,000. This system had to be changed. While the system prevailed for Regiments of the Line, other Corps was provided with clothes by the Ordinance Department. The Royal Warrant of 6th June 1854, granted Colonels a fixed allowance in lieu of the “off-reckoning”. It was determined that the public should pay the army clothing suppliers through the Regimental Agents removing Colonels. This still gave the public no benefit from competition within the garment trade. The Government decided to supply all clothing by public contract with the War Office and the Army Clothing Department was to supervise.

Based on the model of other middle-class co-operatives, such as

“Strength, Composition and Organisation of the Army of Great Britain” published in 1864 describes the set up at Pimlico as being The Factory Department- presided over by the Superintendent of the Royal Army Clothing Factory- responsible for manufacturing some Army clothing. The Inspector’s Department- presided over by the Inspector of Army Clothing – where all materials and articles received from external contractors were examined by experts.

Victoria Street 1896

Civil Service Supply Association, the society issued tickets to its members in exchange for annual subscription. Membership of 'The Stores' as it became known was open only to those in the higher ranks of the armed forces and the widows of officers and the representatives of regimental messes and canteens. In later years membership was expanded to a wider audience and tickets were issued free of charge after 1922. The benefits of membership included a dividend from the profits of the business and the free delivery of goods.

It was proposed that the Government would make the contracts for the cloth for the Infantry based on an open tender process and having procured the cloth, it was to be examined and tested by Inspectors at Weedon, Northamptonshire, and then further contracts would be issued for the making of the clothing.

The movement of Stores from the Tower of London to Weedon commenced on 1st November 1855 suffered from teething troubles which were compounded as a result of the rapid expansion of the Army. A Commission concluded, amongst other faults, that it was a mistake to locate the clothing depot so far from London and re-located the Depot to Pimlico. In 1857 a Government Factory in Woolwich made clothing for the Royal Artillery and Engineers. This produced savings to the public purse and it was decided to extend the system of direct manufacture by the Government and in 1862 the Army Clothing Factory at Grosvenor Gardens in Pimlico was established.

There were originally eight directors, the first managing director being Major F.B. McCrea. The last surviving member of the original board, Captain Ernest Lewis, died on 3rd April 1926. He was joint managing director and treasurer until July 1914.

Ordnance survey maps from 1869 and 1894 of the Pimlico area show the Royal Army Clothing Depot near the Thames and bordered by St George's Square, Chichester St and Claverton St. The area is now Dolphin Square. It is believed that this was where some of the A&N goods were produced. The same 1894 OS map also shows an 'Army and Navy Co-operative Society's Stores' toward the east end of Vincent St, Westminster. Currently where Marsham St joins John Islip Street.

In 1864, the Second Report of the Commissioners, of the Children’s Employment Conditions reported on conditions at the Army Clothing Factory, Pimlico. It was described as consisting of a very large and lofty hall, with an arched roof of glass, and having two galleries, an upper and a lower one, round its four sides. The bulk of the work was carried on in the centre of the hall. All the sewing machines were steam power. The hours were from 7.30 am - 6.15 pm. Worker were better off, both as regards their earnings and their habits and health.

In 1973, A&N was taken over by House of Fraser, which built the current store in place of the original shop four years later. Pimlico & Belgravia Eye April 2014

SIR HANS SLOANE  

Hans Sloane was introduced to cocoa as a drink favoured by the local Jamaican people. He found mixing it with milk made it more palatable. He brought this chocolate recipe back to England where it was manufactured and at first sold by apothecaries as a medicine. In the 19th century Messrs Cadbury manufactured chocolate using Sloane’s recipe. Sloane returned to England in 1689, and published the information he had gathered in Jamaica. This work contains careful and very readable descriptions of not only the plants and animals he encountered but also how natural resources were used by the islands’ inhabitants.

became a successful physician in London with the Royal Family and other eminent persons as his patients but he still found time to treat the poor for nothing. He amassed a large fortune and was able to pursue his lifelong interest in natural history, amassing a vast,important collection that was the foundation of the British Museum.

Hans was born in Killyleagh 16th April 1660. His father was Alexander Sloane, receiver general of taxes, originally from Scotland, and father of seven sons. His father died when Hans was six years old. His mother was Sarah Hicks Sloane, daughter of William Hicks, Canon of Chichester.

In 1695 Hans married Elizabeth Langley Rose and had four children. He developed his medical and scientific interests and became President of the Royal Society, succeeding Sir Isaac Newton, and President of the Royal College of Physicians.

The Sloane’s lived in Bloomsbury, near to the site of the present British Museum. His collections grew and he bought the adjacent house to help accommodate them. Corridors and rooms were filled from top to bottom with plants, animals, gemstones, coins, antiquities, books and many more objects. Sloane’s ‘Museum’ became a major attraction of its time and was visited by a stream of distinguished visitors from Britain and abroad.

The three Sloane boys that survived infancy received their education at the school provided by James Hamilton and they had access to the library at the Castle. James became an eminent lawyer, William a merchant and Hans a prominent physician. The early days in Killyleagh were well suited to Hans as his interests in natural history, particularly botany, developed.

At 16 Hans suffered a severe illness that confined him to his room. At that time his interest in medicine grew and at the age of 19 he left for London to study medicine and natural sciences. He then went to Paris and attended lectures on botany, chemistry and anatomy and then on to the University of Orange where he became a Doctor of Medicine.He became intrigued by the search for new species and describing and naming new plants and   animals was a passion which he would put to good use. On return to London in 1685 he was made a Fellow of the young but prestigious Royal Society, and in 1687 a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. He was offered the chance to travel to Jamaica as physician to the new Governor, the 2nd Duke of Albermarle.

The young physician undertook the 3 month voyage, and made observations during the voyage on phosphorescence in the water and the habits of sea birds. Sloane made extensive notes on the local fauna and flora, the customs of the local inhabitants and natural phenomena such as earthquakes. He compiled a substantial collection of Jamaican plants, in addition to molluscs, insects, fish and many other specimens.

That house also filled and Sloane eventually bought a large manor house in Chelsea with surrounding farmland to house the collection containing 117,000 items of which about 50,000 were books and manuscripts. On his death on11th January 1753, aged 92. The nation purchased his collection and then to house it created the British Museum. His bust is the first item on view at the entrance to the Museum. When the Natural History Museum and the British library were built the natural objects, books and manuscripts were transferred to those establishments.

Such was the esteem of Hans Sloane that Sloane Square was created and a statue erected in the nearby Physic Gardens. Those 4 acre garden were bequeathed by Sir Hans Sloane to the Apothecaries’ Company for the cultivation of medicinal plants for the benefit of medical students. The statue, by Rysbrack, of Sir Hans Sloane, stands in the centre of the Botanic Gardens. The lands remain with the Cadogan family.

Hans Sloane is buried at Chelsea Old Church. 8

BUCKINGHAM PLACE 1940

RICHARD DEACON AT TATE BRITAIN

and its grounds were struck on 16 separate occasions during the Blitz. The Palace forecourt, inner quadrangle and South and North Wings were all marred by high explosive and delayed-action bombs.

Richard Deacon, a leading British sculptor, whos sculptures occupy 6 rooms at Tate Britain – works of varying sizes and using all manner of materials, including wood, metal, cardboard, ceramics, rubber, chrome, leather and marble. They take a chronological journey that snakes through the artist’s evolving practice.

The Palace was first hit on 8th September 1940 when a 50kg delayed-action high explosive bomb landed harmlessly in the grounds. On 9th September 1940 a second delayed-action bomb fell close to a swimming pool at the north western part of the Palace. The bomb was roped off and later detonated, leaving a large crater and destroying much of the swimming pool. The North Wing of the Palace was damaged and many Palace windows were blown out.

Born in Wales in 1949, Deacon pushed the boundaries while studying at St Martin’s and the Royal College of Art in the Seventies. Finding fame in the Eighties as part of the New British Sculpture generation that included artists such as Antony Gormley and Anish Kapoor, he won the Turner Prize in 1987.

The Palace was hit on 13th September at around 11.00 am, during the second of three daylight raids on London that day. A single German raider targeted the Palace with a stick of 5 high explosive bombs. Two of these hit the inner quadrangle, a third struck the Royal Chapel in the South Wing and the remaining two fell on the forecourt and on the roadway between the Palace gates and the Victoria Memorial. A water main was ruptured and windows were blown out on the southern and western sides. The interior of the Royal Chapel was lacerated. Four workers were injured; one later died. Several portraits were damaged in the Palace corridors.

This exhibition highlights Deacon’s interest in materials and their manipulation, as in After 1998, a large wooden work where the continuous and looping form balances volume and space. Also included are works from the small scale but materially rich series Art for Other People 1982– , that explore the notion of contemporary art being owned and enjoyed by anyone. Of particular note are Deacon’s early drawings It’s Orpheus When There’s Singing 1978: a suite of drawings built up from complex compound curves that influenced the organic forms of much of his subsequent sculpture, and the large, sixtypart, green ceramic sculpture Fold 2012.

corkscrews around itself.

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth were in residence at the time of the bombing - taking tea - but escaped unscathed. Congratulations on their safety poured in from around the Empire and beyond.

The incident did not end until 8.40 am the following morning, when the delayed-action bomb - lying between the forecourt gates and the Victoria Memorial - finally detonated. The explosion destroyed much of the forecourt fencing around the south gate and left a crater 30’ by 20’ and 10’ deep.

But the real highlights come later, in works where the artist, or ‘fabricator’ as he describes himself, discovered new ways to manipulate his materials, such as in ‘Out of Order’, a boisterous construction of ribbons of twisted, steamed wood that wildly

On 15th September bombs also hit the Palace lawns and the Regency Bathroom facing the West Terrace. Two days later, on 17th September, another bomb landed shortly before 11.00 am, near the Royal Apartments, smashing a crater in the ground but not detonating upon impact. Investigators quickly confirmed the presence of a delayed-action UXB. The damage was minimal. When it finally detonated around 7.00 pm, this consisted mostly of broken glass littering nearby Grosvenor Place.

On 1st November a bomb hit the lawns close to the western front of the Palace, damaging windows and a ground floor bedroom. The Royal Mews was also damaged. On 8th March 1941, a Luftwaffe bomber flew over the Palace and dropped a single high explosive bomb which hit the North Lodge and partially demolished it. One policeman was killed. No major damage was inflicted on the Palace structure itself or utility mains.

This exhibition is curated by Clarrie Wallis, Curator, Modern & Contemporary British Art with Sofia Karamani, Assistant Curator, Contemporary British Art.

RHS CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW 2014

WILTON CRESCENT - BELGRAVIA

Chelsea bursts into bloom in May for this spectacular Flower Show presented by UK gardening charity the Royal Horticultural Society (Patron HM The Queen) showing the latest and best of international horticulture and garden design.

was the first section of the great Grosvenor Estate to be developed in Belgravia. A general master plan had been drawn for the area that would become Wilton Crescent and Belgrave Square by the Estate’s surveyor, William Porden, as early as 1795, but there were numerous problems including a heavy clay soil and low elevation. Another plan was drawn by Wyatt in 1813, but the northern section was crudely resolved, and the First Earl Grosvenor continued to be hesitant to move forward. Almost simultaneous with George IV’s decision in 1821 to move his primary residence into nearby Buckingham Palace, the new Estate Surveyor, Thomas Cundy I, devised a brilliant crescent resolution to the northern section, and the Second.

Welcoming newcomers and remembering the past, the Great Pavilion will dazzle with exhibits from many of the world’s top nurseries, growers, florists and floral arrangers, including WW1 commemorations and modern scientific displays. Hundreds of exhibitors will delight and fascinate, inside and out. The Artisan and Fresh Gardens offer exciting new ideas for small areas and ‘Peter Rabbit’ hops into a culinary garden celebrating Beatrix Potter’s popular books and characters, drawn from her home in the Lake District.

Cundy’s layout created a soft crescent 500 feet long at its maximum extent, somewhat similar to Wood’s Lansdown Crescent in Bath but with a bit more curve. The outside roadways then proceeded southward to form the west and east flanks of what would become Belgrave Square. William Howard Seth Smith, a prominent builder, apparently built in 1825-26 the street infrastructure for most of the crescent as well as most of the houses, no doubt coordinating with Thomas Cubbit who was working on most of the larger Belgrave Square.

Designer Show Gardens are big attractions, all aiming for a coveted RHS Gold Medal. The Telegraph Garden by del Buono Gazerwitz is inspired by Italy’s historic gardens re-interpreted in 21st century style. BBC Presenter Sophie Raworth at RHS Chelsea Flower Show Tommaso del Buono says, “For this year’s Show I am going back to my roots. I am excited at the prospect of trying to bring some of the vibrancy and flavour of Italy to Chelsea and show how a Latin sensibility and taste will travel and can be successfully applied to gardens elsewhere.” The Laurent-Perrier Garden is by award-winning Italian designer Luciano Giubbilei who creates a place of stillness and movement, of elegance and rawness, rich in texture, light and water, with a sculpture in layers of cedar wood by acclaimed American artist Ursula von Rydingsvard. Designer Charlotte Rowe, whose grandmother was awarded the Military Medal for Bravery in WW1, presents her ‘No Man’s Land' Garden for ABF, The Soldiers Charity, demonstrating the healing power of gardens. There are numerous Show Gardens to see and enjoy.

The resulting park at Wilton Crescent is intimate, and foreshadows fine crescents that later emerged within Belgravia and Kensington. From a development point of view, the shape allows maximum frontage to the surrounding homes, and the scale is adequate and human. Even though the long dimension at the apex exceeds comfortable viewing, the embracing form of the crescent and the narrow depth reinforces the sense of intimacy and neighborhood.

BELGRAVE SQUARE 1821 had seen the transformation of Buckingham House into the royal palace, and the transformation gave new impetus for the development of the five fields owned by the Grosvenor Estate which lay immediately west of the newly designated palace. A bold, industrious and talented person was needed to take full advantage of the market opportunity, and the estate could have found none more capable than Thomas Cubitt. Cubitt. Working with his architect brother, Lewis, and Thomas Cundy representing the Estate, Cubitt and designer George Basevi devised a unified approach, but clipped the corners of the square by introducing with sites for four custom villas. Belgrave Square began with the plainer north and east terraces, and as market traction mounted, made the southern and western terraces more elaborate. The southwestern villa was designed in 1826 by Kendall. Smirke designed the northwest corner villa about 1830 for Lord Brownlow. The southeastern site lay dormant for over 15 years until Lord Sefton had Hardwick design his home. The northeast corner was designed by Cubitt’s office in 1847. Though unified and well constructed, the overall assembly can be faulted from a scale point of view. The square is simply too big.

A new BBC line-up features Monty Don, presenter of Gardeners' World and Sophie Raworth, BBC News presenter, who join other Chelsea Flower Show regulars Joe Swift, Carol Klein and Rachel de Thame for coverage of the Show. Says Sophie Raworth, "I am delighted and honoured to be a part of the Chelsea 2014 team. I grew up in a family of very keen gardeners, so know something about the joys and sheer hard work that go in to creating such beautiful places."

Pimlico & Belgravia Eye April 2014


DAUNTONS - A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF PIMLICO’S LEADING

Thursday: A fascinating insight into Victorian building practices was revealed today when workmen carrying out a refurbishment (that we were project managing for a client in one of Pimlico’s prestigious garden squares) lifted the floorboards and revealed hundreds of thousands of cockle and mussel shells. They were apparently used as an early form of sound insulation. Unfortunately, for the workmen, they have to be removed and it’s going to be a long, dusty, dirty job.

ESTATE AGENTS Monday: The start of the week is usually pretty mundane, completing paperwork after a busy weekend and suchlike but today was far from humdrum; it was highly hilarious. A distressed negotiator stumbled back into the office from an early morning viewing having been locked in a property with a wild* bird! After casually walking in to the flat accompanied by her applicants, she was accosted with a dangerous fluttering of wings and a piercing squawking. She merely escaped death as this reckless creature wreaked havoc in the flat, diving towards our negotiator from every angle. Luckily, she made it out alive (as did the bird) with only a bruise on her head from running into a door frame in a panic. The office was in hysterics for the majority of the day and only wished we could have witnessed this epic event. What a brilliant start to the week!

In amongst viewings, paperwork and deal-making, we love to be creative and all our staff are encouraged to come up with interesting marketing ideas to assist our clients. We hate to be boring and send out generic letters that no one will read, so instead we are designing postcards that give our own impression of how we see Pimlico and the surrounding areas. Look out for them; we hope you will enjoy them or call into the office and pick up a set.

Friday: Brings a charity search. One of our team has decided to take on the Bacchus marathon, held at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking (rather apt as our office is in Denbigh Street). As the event is being held on a vineyard, there will, of course, be a free glass of wine afterwards which will definitely be her motivation in the last leg of the race. The run will take place in September, so lots of time to train and raise lots of money.

Tuesday: Over the past few weeks we have been designing and planning our latest advertising campaign and have finally taken delivery of the finished article from our printers. Now all that’s left is the distribution. We fill our bags to the brim and jump in a taxi ready for an afternoon of leaflet dropping. After almost losing our fingers to excitable dogs and vicious letterboxes, we were finished and straight in the pub for a well-deserved glass of wine.

Being Pimlico agents, we’d like to raise money for something close to home and help out a charity that is based in the area. Your suggestions are welcome!

Wednesday: Today we were instructed on a unique, spacious two bedroom flat. We were quick off the mark to get our photographers in and we had the property on the market in no time. Probably a bit too quick this time as the owner was at home scrubbing the outside walls from top to bottom and consequently narrowly missed being featured in the brochure, however it’s always refreshing to see landlords taking good care of their property! The weather has started to improve, so too has the market reflected by the exciting new instructions we have received. The sunshine makes everything better!

*Wild – the bird was livid but please note it was merely a blue tit and was not harmed by our negotiator in her attempt to escape.
