Ducking Pond Mews, Mayfair
« on: Friday 02 March 18 13:41 GMT (UK) »
In 1887, I've come across someone who lived at 2 Ducking Pond Mews, Mayfair.

Can't find it on modern maps and there is little info on the net.

Can anyone give me more information please.

(Must be worth a Fortune these days!)

Thanks All

Trying to compare modern maps, looks like, apart from some of the streets, the whole area has been redeveloped.

Centre of this map http://london1872.com/stanford19b.htm you can see Curzon Street (in the angle formed by the two parks)

Just south and running parallel is Hertford Street. Just east of that and running north-south is Ducking Pond Mews.
