Pickwick, Brook Street

Pickwick, Brook Street, 1951. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Pickwick was another pub, like its neighbour a few doors up (Upper) Brook Street, the Royal Oak Inn, that was lost in 1965 due to redevelopments [1].  Named after the Dicken's novel, The Pickwick was also a Wilson's house that was a door or two away from Grosvenor Street, so its location would have been where the blanked whitewashed building is in the below shot.
