Old Kent Road. This part of OKR was known as Sussex Place in the 1860s. Not sure of the date of the picture but with the trams possible the early 1900s? The road to the left at that time was called Bowles Road. Pub on the opposite side of the street to later years.

Wellington Baths, Old Kent Road. This building was erected in 1905 at the Old Kent Road junction with Marlborough Grove. The baths had two swimming pools, slipper baths, Turkish baths, Russian vapour baths and a public wash house. The building was destroyed by bombing during WW2.
