Maunder’s Fishmonger

Click for full size

The Chelsea Embankment was built as a sewer cover and flood defence for the river Thames in 1874, with part of Cheyne Walk widened. This quaint 1600s shop could then be seen face on for the first time and became a magnet for artists. Writer Thomas Carlyle’s wife Jane was a customer too. Mainly facing the river, Cheyne Walk is now a magnet for the rich and famous!
