The area beyond that to the North West is the North West corner of Notting Hill gridsquare known as Notting Dale, which was a notorious slum. None of the original houses now remain. Notting Hill was laid out in the 1840s as new-build upon open fields, once the district line suburban railway had been laid through there, enabling fast access to the City of London. After the Second World War, Notting Hill had stopped being an upscale area with large family homes and the large houses were subdivided into apartments, many of which were ruled over by the notorious slum-lord, Mr Rackman Wikipedia - Link - Rackman . During the 1950s it became the scene of the infamous Notting Hill riots. In the 1960s it became Bohemian which explains its appearance in Blow Up (1966)
