Blessington Road, Lee, Lewisham, c.1960


This view looks east along Blessington Road.

The area was developed in the 1850s and 1860s by the Merchant Taylors' Company. Substantial detached and semi-detached houses were typical.

After wartime bomb damage a large part of the estate was redeveloped as Council housing in the 1960s.
