This is the part of the Square people are least familiar with, mainly on account of it not existing any more. The numbering of the houses on every side is a worthy subject of study in itself, but due to various timing issues, the houses here (from the far end) went 15, 16, 16a and then St Catherine's church. It then followed with 17,18 and 34 Oxford Street, on account of the door being around the corner.
While this part had just as many fascinating occupants as the rest during the early years, it was the twentieth century when some of the well known occupants lived in these buildings. I've already posted about nobel winner Joseph Rotblat, and will add a post shortly about the poet Kenneth Allott, who had his home in the East terrace.
