Trafalgar Avenue, Peckham, c. 1972


This area of Peckham, close to the Old Kent Road, was developed from the 1840s.

These two terraces of the early 1850s show a classical restraint. The style reflects Georgian town houses of 30 years earlier.

In the 1850s this part of north Peckham was developing as a handsome, middle-class suburb.
