Cherry Garden Street

Cherry Grarden Street 1934 with Cranbourne Place clearly marked off to the left.
The 1916 map shows Cranbourne Place as a large H shaped area between Marigold Street and Cherry Garden Street.
The 1950s street atlas shows Cranbourne Passage running between Marigold Street and Cherry Garden Street.
Today the whole area has changed with redevelopment and all the old houses have now gone

Joe,

Haven't been on here for a bit - holidays, family things, work being done on the house. Thank you for putting the photo of old Cherry Garden Street up. An uncle by marriage was born there, and all these old photos help to build up a 'picture' of the area.

If you ever find photos of old St James Street, and Llewellyn Street in its old incarnation of New Church Street, I'd love to see them.

Kathy

Hello, I'm a new member so thanks for allowing me to join your group. I'm very interested to learn about the area my grandparents and their predecessors came from. I remember as a child, my father taking me to Bermondsey and I have a fading mental picture of dark brown streets, tall brown buildings and slippery cobbles. My family were called Pocknell. In 1901 census James William (B. 1874) lived with his wife Katherine and daughters Lily and Edith (my grandma) at 87 Russell Scott Buildings, Cherry Garden Street. Edith later worked at the Peek Freen Factory and went on to marry Percy Turrell in 1926. My Great Grandfather William was a milkman in 1901 so I imagine that was with a horse and cart? William's father was a Lighter-man living in Fulford Street and Katherine's father was a fish salesman living in Salisbury St. I can't find my family in the 1911 census bar Lily who went into service in Catford. Something happened to Katherine because my grandma Edith and her sister Lily spent some time in a orphanage (?) apparently because her father was alone and couldn't cope with two young daughters. I have not yet found a record or death certificate for Katherine?

What happened to the R.S. Buildings? I think my family suffered great hardships but I find myself anxious to find out more. If anyone can shed any light on life between 1840-1950 I'd be so grateful to hear from you. Thank you Aliblair52

Re-post of fosney picture (above) with the added information. I'm assuming Mr Collier lived in one of these houses?
