In the 1840s, before today’s watering holes, soldiers from the London Garrison quenched their thirst in Richmond Street’s "grog shops." Today, Richmond Row is a popular storied shopping street with over 200 businesses. This year at Doors Open, London Life presents the stories of Richmond Row using video, audio, rare photographs and live storytelling.
