Map of Camberwell, Lewisham, 1891


The most striking feature of this map is the gardens: the detail in which they are shown and their size.

The more exclusive development along Camberwell Grove, Grove Lane, Champion Hill and Denmark Hill are more or less complete, while much of the eastern portion shows open fields awaiting development.
