A new account on Flickr, Historic Images UK, has posted a batch of old photos of Camberwell that I’ve never seen before. Among many (many) of Camberwell Grove, there are some real old treasures. Here are a few good ones.
This is the corner of Camberwell Green where the public toilets now stand. Is that some kind of shrine there, or just a monument?
The Lava Skating Rink, which stood at the top of Camberwell Grove near Denmark Hill station. So‐called because the surface was covered with lava from Vesuvius.
Camberwell Grove, 1905. Hasn’t changed much.
I think this is the cottage that still stands at the top of Camberwell Grove, although it’s not thatched any more.
A drawing of the old St Giles church, which stood on the site of the current one.
300‐year‐old galleried stables on Camberwell Grove. Gone now, I think.
