Proposed Layout of Manor Park Estate, Streatham, c. 1860


A map showing a proposal to develop housing around a park on the Manor Park Estate, consisting of more than eighty acres of ground between Streatham High Road and Mitcham Lane.

It is advertised as being well wooded and having a large ornamental fish pond, with a lake and shrubbery in the course of formation.

Attention is drawn to the fact that 'the surrounding neighbourhood is formed of houses of a superior description'.

Of interest is the house shown in Streatham Green which was then, as now, common land.
