Entitled – Carlton House Terrace.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Carlton House Terrace. – In the year 1828 Carlton House was demolished, and many of the ornamental interior details – such as marble mantelpieces, friezes, and columns – were transferred to Buckingham Palace. Upon the site of the gardens have been erected the Duke of York’s Column, together with that magnificent range of palaces known as Carlton House Terrace. The bulustrades of the terrace originally extended between the two blocks of mansions, but were removed to form the present entrance to St. James’s Park, by command of William IV., soon after the accession of that monarch to the Throne. The house in Carlton House Terrace next but one eastward from the Duke of York’s Column was for many years the residence of Mr. Gladstone, and had previously been occupied by another Prime Minister, namely, the Earl of Derby. No. 9 has been for some years the official residence of the German Ambassador, Count Hatzfeldt; and here in 1873 died Count Bernstorff. The present Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Geo. N. Curzon, lives at No. 5, Carlton House Terrace. The original Carlton House was built for Henry Boyle, Lord Carleton, in 1709, and purchased by Frederick Prince of Wales in 1732. On the Pall Mall side of Carlton House Terrace are statues of Lord Napier of Magdala, erected in 1891; Colin Campbell, Lord Clyde (1863); and beyond it a statue of Lord Lawrence, Governor of the Punjab and Viceroy of India. There is also a statue of Sir John Franklin, by Noble. These splendid mansions are without doubt the most imposing in the British Metropolis by reason of their position and magnitude.
