John Brown writes:
"Although High Elms was a large house, it was well screened from the highway by tall trees and shrubs and I have never seen a full image of the building. However, the aforementioned sketch of the bottom of the Common does show a part of the building opposite the pond, and a painting made in 1827 from the top of Streatham Common shows the roof of the property. The house was demolished in the 1880s and the site is now occupied by a handsome terrace of late Victori- an shops called Bank Parade".
