My mother lived as a young girl with my grandparents at 34 grant road in the 1930s I believe it was a sweet shop at that time. On google maps it looks as though that number no longer exists such a shame.
My grandfather's brother Albert Charles Greenfield was an omnibus driver in 1907 who married at The Church of the Ascension. His family lived in Birley Street near Clapham Junction. His wife Elizabeth Penfold's family lived in Battersea High street at no 130a. This photo shows the haphazard road use in Battersea at that time and perhaps the type of Bus that he drove?
