Jerningham Road, New Cross, Lewisham, c. 1910


The Haberdashers' Company, one of the city livery companies, developed their lands in New Cross in the last quarter of the 19th century.

The development consisted of large semi-detached houses aimed at the upper end of the the market for commuters who were able to take advantage of train services to London from the nearby New Cross stations.
