English Wimpole Street

Wimpole Street is a street in Marylebone, central London. Located in the City of Westminster, it is associated with private medical practice and medical associations. No. 1 Wimpole Street is an example of Edwardian baroque architecture, completed in 1912 by architect John Belcher as the home of the Royal Society of Medicine. 64 Wimpole Street is the headquarters of the British Dental Association.

Wimpole Street was home to a few celebrities, such as Paul McCartney who lived at the home of the Asher family at 57 Wimpole Street in 1964–1966 during his relationship with Jane Asher. At this address John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote "I Want to Hold Your Hand" in the front basement room, while McCartney wrote the tune to "Yesterday" in a box room at the top of the house.On the corner of Wimpole and Wigmore Street took place a legal case about causing a "nuisance" between neighbours, in Sturges v Bridgman (1879).

In 1932, Paul Abbatt and Marjorie Abbatt opened a toy shop, Paul & Marjorie Abbatt Ltd, designed by their friend, the architect Ernő Goldfinger, at 94 Wimpole Street. The shop was unique in that children were allowed to touch and play with the displayed toys.

Chenese 温坡街

温坡街(Wimpole Street)是英国, 伦敦西敏市的一条街道。温坡街1号是一座爱德华巴洛克建筑,由建筑师约翰·贝尔彻完成于1912年,为皇家医学会所在地。温坡街64号则是英国牙医协会总部。

温坡街与威格莫尔街转角是1879年斯特奇斯诉布里奇曼案的发生地。

1838年,女诗人伊丽莎白·巴雷特和她的家人住在温坡街50号,直到1846年与羅勃特·白朗寧私奔。根据他们的故事写成的戏剧《温坡街的巴雷特一家》,使得温坡街变得出名。凯瑟琳康奈尔出演该剧。她退休后搬到纽约东51街,演出该剧的两个男演员也和她是邻居,因而这条街被昵称为“温坡街”。

弗吉尼亚·伍尔夫曾如此描述温坡街:“这是伦敦最庄严的街道,最客观地说。事实上,当整个世界似乎崩溃成为废墟,文明的岩石还在它的根基上,一个人只有来到温坡街...".在蕭伯納的戏剧《皮革馬利翁》中,亨利·希金斯的住址位于温坡街。在《窈窕淑女》中,住址为27a。
