Here's Waldenshaw Rd before the war with St Paul's Church...


...and here it is today...



Enjoy that next time you drive to Sainsbury's and spare a thought for the 20mph speed limit there too, thanks Cool

Brilliant photo's. Do you have any more.

And as another Waldenshaw Resident I mirror the 20 mph sentiment.

That's the only pic I can find online. However check out this old Ordinance Survey overlay of London on Google Maps and type in SE23 3XP and you'll see what was there in the late 19th Century.

Londondrz you might be able to find more on Steve Grindlay's blog.

If not you can email him via the blog and ask, he was able to tell me the history of my shop since it was built by Ted Christmas, the pic I've put up on Dartmouth Rd from around 1900 also came from Steve. Smile

I have a number of such postcards, bought with the aim of doing the same thing - then and now shots. I'm waiting for the summer so that there are leaves on the trees, then will put them on my (sporadic) blog.
