This is a view of Blue Anchor Lane, Peckham. Or is it a déjà vu?

Picture from Collage states Blue Anchor Lane, Southwark 1926.
Obviously, this does not make it right, so can you explain or show way you think it is in Peckham. Kiwi.

Neither Bermondsey nor Peckham was in Southwark back then, both are now, so the caption is not specific.
No houses in Blue Anchor Lane, Bermondsey, had front or long rear gardens. This row of cottages can be found on old maps of Blue Anchor Lane, Peckham, labelled 'The Orchard' with long front gardens and Bachelor's Hall Place running up the right hand side.

As I thought Blue Anchor Lane. Thanks to Fogbrain for confirming that and for the added information concerning this picture, which can be seen in MYSTERY-DO YOU RECOGNISE THESE PLACES? Topic.
