Maunder’s Fishmonger

Click for full size

A fishmonger was a winner in Hazle’s 2012 vote. The 1874 Chelsea Embankment made Cheyne Walk wider and this quaint 1600s shop could be seen face on. Its features made it a magnet for artists like Whistler and now Hazle. The red sign and stairs lead to J Allbrook, Chimney Sweep. Rare for the 1800s, the owner was a feisty lady. Writer Thomas Carlyle’s wife Jane was one of her distinguished customers.

 F Brown’s 1883 oil has the shop near left and the Chelsea Embankment. This road was a sewer cover and flood defence for the Thames beyond.

 Detail from W Burgess etching circa 1891, with smoke from frying fat billowing out of the shop.

 One of J Whistler’s etchings of the shop. He lived in the new house here until he died in 1903.

 Thames whitebait was popular Victorian fare. Did Maunder’s fry them as a finger food!
