Blackfen Road, Blackfen, c. 1930



Blackfen Road at the junction with Days Lane.

The 1930s saw the main area of growth in Blackfen with much new housing being built.

For the newcomers there was often a pleasant surprise as both the United Dairies (shown in the photograph) and the Express Dairy (at the Oval) sent 'Welcome' packages to prospective customers of a bottle of milk, 1/4lb of butter and a pot of cream.
