Further activity in Raphael Street [Kensington] took place in 1852/3 with the erection of a row of five shops (which became Nos 33/37) on the shallow plots opposite the Pakenham Tavern. They were the work of a Kensington builder, Francis J. Attfield. Another builder, George Day of New Kent Road, was responsible for the remainder of the south side of the street, built up in 1854/5, and Nos 10 and 11 on the north side, built in 1854. Both Attfield and Day were presumably working under contract not as speculators, for in August 1853 all their houses ... were leased directly by Raphael's heirs to a West End solicitor, Frederick William Dolman ....
Day's houses ... were built close to the pavement edge, with gratings to light the basements or cellars. They had stuccoed window surrounds and roundarched entrances. The Pakenham Tavern was large and showy; its curved and fully stuccoed façade was echoed across the road by Attfield's shops.
