Park Court , Clapham, c. 1910



Park Court in Clapham Park Road, a large block of luxury flats, was altered in 1978 when the top two floors were demolished reducing the height to three storeys and introducing new security entrances, boundary walls and additions to the rear of the building.

This was a change that would not have been encouraged after 2000, when the demand for accommodation in London has favoured increasing dwelling units where possible.

This view shows the junction with Abeville Road and Acre lane. Note the children playing by the old signpost in the centre, inconceivable with today's traffic conditions.
