Going through old vacation photos, and have some from London in 1985 that I can't identify. I see what appears to be an underground tube station on the right, and a number 30 bus heading to Putney.enter image description here

    I’m voting to close this question because “where in London did I take this photograph in 1985?” is not a travel question and is neither interesting nor useful to anybody other than OP.

    IMHO the two signs with the roundels are more likely to be bus stops than signalling an underground station.

    The route at the time was (in the opposite direction): PUTNEY HEATH Green Man - Putney - Fulham Cross - South Kensington - Hyde Park Corner - Marble Arch - Baker Street - Marylebone Road - Euston Road - Kings Cross - Islington - Dalston - Hackney Downs - Hackney - HACKNEY WICK according to londonbuses.co.uk/_routes/current/030.html I think the red brick building in the back is probably the best hint on the picture, though I don’t recognise it (and it may be long gone by now).

    Note that there are 2 ChrisHs here - one found it uninteresting, the other (me) was mildly interested and delighted by the resource jcaron found. We only really overlap on Travel, so it rarely causes confusion, but I was about to vehemently disagree with comments that weren't for me May 9 '21 at 19:41

This is on Brompton Road, just off the northern corner of Harrods, looking towards what is now One Hyde Park.
