Hi Jade, what is the date of the map?


This was/is the location of what was Western Police Station to which were attached Rank and File married quarters together with married quarters for inspectorate officers. I lived in the single men's quarerts in the station in the early 1960s;they were pretty dismal with only a black and white Rediffusion tv for entertainme,t. The vol;ume had to be turned up to drown out the sound of the trams. Closing the windows to stop the smells worked but mde the place hotter. Onr past time was breeding tropical fish in a fish tank in your room; quite a competition

@BHUI25044, this map shows the old Kennedy Town police station, which was up the hill on Pokfield Road (see https://gwulo.com/node/17733 for more details).

I guess you're thinking of the station on the corner of Des Voeux Road West and Western Street, see https://gwulo.com/node/17028

Yes, you aereof course right. The map seemed to indicate the position you mention
