Stockwell Green, Stockwell, c. 1868


Stockwell, now part of inner London, was originally one of the villages of Lambeth Parish.

The village green, shown here surrounded by Georgian residential development, survived until the late 19th century when it was built upon for suburban housing.

To the left can be seen Waltham Brewery, one of Stockwell's two main breweries.
