Hesperus Crescent 1940s

Image Number:





Island History Trust Image Collection


Neighbours in Hesperus Crescent, E14. In front of gate, Mrs Placey; behind gate, Mrs Mary Holmes. Date of photograph unknown but as Hesperus Crescent was only built in the 1930s, and the gate is already showing signs of age, the photograph is probably post-war. From Mrs N. Gregory
