Gore moved from 31 Mornington Crescent to a first floor flat on nearby 2 Houghton Place in Spring 1912. This view, painted from his balcony window, shows Amptill Square. Since 1909 Gore became fascinated with his Camden
Town surroundings. Most of his urban subjects were found within a few metres
of his home and were transformed in his pictures through his vivid use of colouring and strong sense of design.
Ampthill Square and Houghton Place were demolished in 1968 to make way for a tower block known as the Ampthill Estate.
