WOLSELEY STREET, BUILDINGS, SOUTHWARK c1925

Wolseley Street was called London Street.
Wolseley Buildings, Dockhead, Bermondsey, 1926. Tenements such as these were a common feature of inner south London in the late 19th and early 20th century. Typically, they had been built by private landlords, some with a philanthropic inclination. Though unattractive to modern eyes they had better facilities than the buildings they replaced and were able to cope with the high population density of the day.

Mr Cole is an unemployed labourer and is five weeks behind in the payment of his rent the crowd outside the home watching the police enter the building. 8 November 1932. Very sad time for the family, I wonder what happened to them? lets hope they had better times round the corner.

Great picture of Wolseley Building any idea of the date with the horse and cart and gas light I should imagine its between the 1930 to 1950 with the modern road sign near the lamp post?

In the first post Kiwi noted that Wolseley Street used to be London Street. This print of London Street in 1810 gives a sense of the unsanitary conditions that caused disease for the poor locals of the day.
