When a building has been demolished, the rubble has to be cleared away. And there was a large amount of this!
Seen from road level, a cleared site.
North Block - only the outer wall remaining.
There was a sliding door (now bricked up) which at one time gave access to the houses.
The East Block wall remains, with the railway viaduct behind.
Looking south towards Smith's Yard. The street of Lime Grove is at the extreme right.
The cleared site, looking south-east.

Now that the studios were gone, and the valuable site cleared, it was to be re-developed.
