Rushey Green, Catford, Lewisham, c. 1910


Rushey Green is the southern continuation of Lewisham High Street.

This view looks north from the junction with Rosenthal Road.

The enclosed green space was once a drainage ditch running the length of Rushey Green and Lewisham High Street.

The house behind the tree to the right (Lulworth) dates from the early 19th century and was occupied by Henry Munro, Surgeon, one of a concentration of doctors in this group of houses. The tram line was electrified in 1906.
