URLWIN STREET

Higgs Dairy Offices, Urlwin Street, Camberwell, c. 1920. Higgs had branches in Camberwell, Brixton and Peckham and deliveries in these areas. Their farm was in Eltham which, in the early 20th century, was overwhelmingly rural. Higgs were unusual in not (obviously) being Welsh - the vast majority of London dairymen came from Wales and in particular from Cardiganshire. Their communities had as their focus the Welsh Presbyterian Churches on Southwark Bridge Road and Lewisham Way

The actor Michael Caine grew up in 14 Urlwin Street. It was an unhappy childhood and in those days his upstairs flat was very squalid. It sure looks like from the pic below that it has been nicely fixed up
