Grosvenor Street

A Topographical and Statistical description of the County of Middlesex, etc (1810) by George Alexander Cooke

Grosvenor Street

Entering Bond Street , famous for its shops and its loungers, we proceed through Bruton Street to Berkeley Square , and continuing to walk through Davies Street and Grosvenor Street enter Grosvenor Square, which is surrounded by extremely grand though not uniformly built houses .The centre of the square is occupied by a handsome shrubbery, neatly railed in and containing a gilt equestrian statue of George I. This square takes its name from Sir Richard Grosvenor, Bart, ancester of Earl Grosvenor who first projected it.
