here (Streetview). This was the start of Royal Court Road (now closed and paved over) with #19 on the left, and the States Chamber on the right. The Members' Entrance in on the right, and we plebs get to see them come in and out on States Sittings Days. This is where many TV interviews happen, as the reporters hang around here waiting to catch their prey.
I believe the Bailiff's Chambers at the end here (as seen on Streetview) were built in 1931 if I've read and decoded MCMXXXI correctly.
this is as far as they went (Streetview) - looking up from the other end. Here #3 Vine St on the left is the St.Helier Registrar, and on the Even Numbered side of the street things start at #2, currently the rear of HSBC. Before that it was Collins and a useful passageway through to King St - sorely missed.
Back to the Square, and #13 (Slomans Estate Agents at present) has had a busy past, being Guardian R.E. Insurance in 1988's almanac, a number occupiers before that, and was the A.G.'s office in 1920. And back in 1879 it was the Uruguay Consulate!
#14 is currently the back of Cath Kidston, formerly Evans, Au Caprice back in 1988, many and various offices before that.
That golden statue is of George II (all mileages from St.Helier are measured from here), erected in the square in 1751 in gratitude for his gift of £200 towards the construction of a new harbour - this also being the origin of the name Royal Square.
#2 is on the doorway at The Peirson, and there's a #4 on the side entrance to pearcejewellers.co.uk
To finish our look at Royal Square JE2 4WA addresses, the Peirson Pub is #17, there is a passageway between here and #18, to Halkett Place, going behind the King St Jewellers Hettich (emerging here on Streetview).
The Peirson's neighbouring pub the Cock and Bottle (formerly the Cosy Corner) is #18, and the adjacent property (next to the States Chamber) is #19 - former home to the Chamber of Commerce, Healey and Baker, and Ermitage Management (1988 almanac), R.A. Rossborough (1978 almanac), Norwich Union (1964), Le Masurier & Co (1933 and 1920 copies), the "Chronique de Jersey" in 1910, back to 1873 etc.
The history of the States Buildings block probably deserves a book of its own, having a wide variety of interesting entries in the old almanacs from the days before the whole lot became our dear government.
Old Royal Square addresses have even gone up to #21 or more, most confusingly! The middle of the block appears to be around #4 in some almanacs. I'll keep an eye out for any history of the place if it crops up, but that's the end of my research here for now.
