Sorry for the quality of this scan, but it was from a 1965 print in the SLP of an earlier view of the Elephant & Castle. I hadn't seen this pic before so thought it worth sharing. The caption reads:
"This view of the old Elephant and Castle public house, hub of the old six-roads juction for more than a century, with the curious dome of the Northern Line tube in the background, will take a generation or two to banish from the memory despite the fact that most of it has now gone to make way for the massive L.C.C. redevelopment of the area"

A man climbs onto a Southwark milk cart near the Elephant and Castle in South London. No street name but it does give an indication of what life was like back then, the milkman was part of our everyday life.

Thanks, Fogbrain. Oswin Street runs between St George’s Road & Brook Drive (2017) It was called Brook Street in the 1930s.

Coalman unloading sacks from a horse-drawn cart underneath the railway arches in the Elephant and Castle area of London, 8th January 1949. I think this is possible ARCH STREET off NEW KENT ROAD.?
