Queensthorpe Road, Sydenham, c. 1910


The roads on the 'Thorpe' Estate were built by the firm of Edmondson & Sons between 1901 and 1914 over the garden of the Old House, the home of the Mayow family and once the centre of Sydenham's largest private estate.

Edmonson & Sons had experience of building very similar streets of middle class houses in North London before moving to Sydenham.
