Houses opposite Royal Parade, Chislehurst, c. 1952



Taken from the corner of the Bull Hotel, this picture gives a good indication of the village nature of this part of Chislehurst.

The cottage on the right is pre-suburban dating from before 1825, but the others are all mid 19th century and reflect the rapid growth of the town during this period.
