This has been included mainly out of interest to those who might want to know what Portobello Road and Wornington Road looked like long before the present estate was built. Wornington Road was useful as a ‘rat run’ for getting from Maida Vale and beyond towards the M4 and all points West. It could be used again if the plans go ahead.
There was a rail link from Latimer Road down past Olympia ending up at Clapham Junction. It had to be demolished to build West Cross Route but with hindsight that seems a pity.
Note also that there was a bridge over the railway joining Telford Road, which crosses the Wornington Green Estate on the Portobello side with Bosworth Road on the Kensal Road side.
The scans were taken from my grandfather Lancelot Johnson’s London streetmap, bought around 1918. JOhn
