Slum houses in Blue Anchor Lane
View of wood-clad slum housing at 7-15 Blue Anchor Lane (previously known as Blue Anchor Yard), Peckham. The lane is cobbled with a drain running down the centre. A group of children are posing in front of a window and further down the street people are gathered around wooden carts. Further down the lane, a street lamp on the side of a building indicates the entrance to Kitchener's Alley (a narrow dog-leg leading west to Peckham Hill Street) with a bollard in front of it. Part of the lane nearest Peckham High Street still exists and is now called Mission Place. Shortly after this picture was taken the buildings were all demolished to make way for Wakefield House in the Oliver Goldsmith Estate, built in 1931.
