Slippers Place, Rotherhithe, 1958


Slippers Place was a terrace dating from c.1850, built between Southwark Park Road and the park itself.

It was built on ground particularly unsuited to building as the area had previously been a series of ditches and islands that fed into the main mill stream to the north. 

The site was cleared and new flats erected here shortly after the photograph was taken.
