STREATHAM COMMON NORTH c 1905
A busy scene captured by a local photographer in the early 1900s showing a number of horse and carts and local residents on Streatham Common Northside, near the junction with Leigham Court Road.
On the right can be seen a sign post pointing the way to "Streatham Hill Station" which is located at the end of the Road. The picture was probably taken on a Sunday when people were enjoying the delights of the common on their day off including a man wearing an impressive top hat who can be seen strolling just by the sign post.
On the left of the road, where a number of men are loitering, is a large drinking fountain and underneath the tree another gent wearing a top hat is seated on a park bench enjoying the view accross the common. Note the pram on the extreme left with a mother/nursemaid standing close by.
