Formosa Road, W9 – London Streets with China names (cont’d)

Posted: November 23rd, 2022 | No Comments »

A long time ago I blogged about the China-related street names that survive around the West India Dock Road in E14, the East End, stemming of course from the trade destinations – Nankin, Pekin, Canton and there’s an Amoy Place. The other day I happened to be walking around the far more salubrious postcode, W9 (Warwick Avenue/Maida Vale) and noticed a Formsa Road that I’d never noticed before – not so sure of how this one came to be named?
