Ruston Mews in the 1960s
The post-war regeneration of London started to affect the Notting Hill area in the 1960s when it became fashionable to live in a mews house. At the time Ruston Mews was a rough cobbled street with a collapsing wall bordering the rough ground leading up to the underground railway. A series of photos have been collected that show the mews at that time.
