I've got no personal memories of Battersea, except for visits to the fair, but my ancestors lived there throughout the last half of the 19th century until at least 1933. They all lived at various houses on Belfour Street and Everett Street, and I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who lived on those streets, and whether there are any photographs extant.
Belfour & Everett Streets ran parallel to each other in approximately the area where the new American Embassy is being built. The last trace I can find of Belfour Street is in 1901, but Everett Street was still in place in 1940. Is there anyone who might be able to help me discover when Belfour Street was demolished?
