Re: GARDEN ROW/CLARENCE PLACE

Thanks, Kiwi, that's exactly right - Clarence Place is out of site behind the ironically named Garden Row. The building in the background is Central Street School. Collage has apparently removed 'Southwark' from the caption, so are apparently aware that it wasn't right, but maybe haven't worked out ...

Re: Brunel Road - Rotherhithe

Picture states, Adam Street numbers 47-49. I think this maybe Brunel Road? Adam Street is indeed the original name for Brunel Road - the street predates the Thames Tunnel by many years. It is after the street that the pub therein was named. The building on the right is indeed Rotherhithe Station, b...

Re: OLD KENT ROAD.

This part of OKR was known as Sussex Place in the 1860s. Sussex Place was the terrace of houses further to the north-west that became 464-484 OKR; 464 was on the corner of Ossory Road. This was a common practice by developers to make the new properties sound posher and it has been continued since, ...

Re: MYSTERY-DO YOU RECOGNISE THESE PLACES?

Thanks, Kiwi, I surprise myself sometimes. I was more surprised though to discover that the houses on the right (of which you can only see the window sills) survive. And surprised also to see that some front yards are separated by brick walls, albeit with sloping tops, but others by railings as they...
