I'm pretty sure Knight's were on the corner of Bingley Road, opposite the North Foreland. As you say, I wonder what happened to all of those models?

New Medway Steam Packet Company

This building was recently featured in a Guess the Place post. Here it is pictured during the war and housing The New Medway Steam Packet Company which owned and operated many vessels, with the Medway Queen being one of them.

I believe it is still trading as a registered charity as The Medway Queen Preservation Society.
