Buildings in Platt Street and Purchese Street
View of the rear of the former police station and houses in Platt Street, Camden, looking north across a grassed area, a hard-surfaced area enclosed by a chain link fence and past a sizable industrial building with an asbestos cement corrugated apex roof. On the left of the view appears to be a c1960 single-storey school building (possibly part of the Edith Neville Primary School) with a canopy, shed buildings, one painted with cartoon characters, and a fenced-off play area with metal climbing frames in front with two adults sitting on a bench. Behind the school on to the left is the three-storey Georgian houses in Charrington Street. The rear gardens of the derelict houses in Platt Street look to be full of dumped materials and also a crane. The buildings in the immediate area have since been demolished and replaced with a low-rise housing estate around a new entrance road, Somers Close.
