Well, I think the top right is Blackheath Standard in the late 50's or early 60's judging by the cars. Bottom left is the junction of Woolwich Road and Farmdale Road before the A102M was cut through and took the traffic over the flyover. and, lastly, the bottom right is the Junction of Woolwich Road/Blackwall Lane/Vanburgh Hill Looking at the Swan and Billet Pub. I would think they are all about the same date.As to the top left.....I have no idea....LOL
Sorry, just noticed it's the Ship and Billet Pub.......what was I thinking??
Could top right possibly be Edward Street in Deptford looking west with the Pagnell Street junction the other side?
Sorry.. I meant top-left!
Having spent a few more mins carefully studying the pic on the top left, I have come to the conclusion that it's Westcombe Park bridge as it passes over Westcombe Hill.Again, this was probably in the late 50's/60's before the new road was put through. Does anyone know just how many houses had to be demolished for the A102M?
You're quite right. and I must be blind... well I am.. I lost my decent glasses in Croatia last week!! It does say Westcombe Park Station clearly on the bridge parapet after all. The phone box is even in the same place.. or at least there used to be one there if there isn't any longer. I guess that's Sperati's, the button maker's, on the other side of the bridge, and the shops to the right are now an open green space.
