The remarkable makeover of 20-22 Greenwich Church Street

Walking past it today, you would never imagine that Church Street has gone through some hardship in the 20th century, with its pristine salmon walls and white collonades. But this stretch of buildings, and in particular, 20-22 Church Street, was very badly damaged from high-explosive bombs during World War II - most likely dropped between Stockwell Street and Welland Street. The bombs were so powerful that buildings on the opposite side of the street were also nearly destroyed.

Before:

 

Greenwich Hospital has restored to the building to its former glory, leaving no trace of the street's scars. The renovation is quite remarkable.

After:

 

Peyton and Byrne have recently moved into the space, and it looks as though they are settling in very nicely.
