A House in Bayswater

‘A House in Bayswater’ was a 1960 documentary by Ken Russell, in which we met the varied tenants of 30-32 Linden Gardens, Bayswater. Occupants included the future Magnum photographer David Hurn, shown photographing an almost naked model in order to make ends meet. It was obviously a tough existence! The film claims that the house was eventually demolished, but it exists to this day.
