No. 1 Barker Road

No. 1 Barker Road

not sure when built or demolished, though I think it went in the past few years.  thanks to aetse

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, January 1, 1982


I used to live just below this house in Mansfield Road, and remember when this house was the German-Swiss School. 

They moved out in about 1973 to their purpose-built school in Guildford Road. 

Again, I'm just going on what I knew in school over a decade ago and that was the house further up the hill, and to the left in this picture was the US Consul's house. Although I can't recall having seen it recently, the US flag flew proudly above the house.

And this photo is for that demolished house?

I just grabbed this photo from Google Street View so you can see what is there now.

This photo is not the US Consul's residence.  This photo is of "1 Barker Road". 

There are three buildings in this photo:

  1. The main building in the foreground is, as Annelise says, "1 Barker Road"
  2. Above that we can see the corner of a platform, with a curved building on it. That may be part of 3 Barker Road, the US Consul General's House.
  3. Then in the distance on the skyline is a much smaller building with a curved balcony.

I'll change the title of this photo from "No. 3 Barker Road/Former U.S. Consul General's House" to "No. 1 Barker Road".

This photo in which Farnborough, 1 Barker Road, is the main subject, also has  "Normandie", 22 Severn Road, ( at the top.
