Old Maps of South Norwood

Historic Maps of South Norwood and the local area.

I was born in East Dulwich but my parents moved to Waverley Road, South Norwood when I was 3 months old. I moved out to Rayleigh Essex with my wife, who also lived in Waverley Road after our marriage in 1955. I was, and still am an ardent Crystal Palace fan.

My family lived in Holmesdale Road all our lives. Grew up to support CPFC. My friend lived at the top of the road we lived in the middle. My friend and her family moved to West Sussex but we kept in touch. We really have been friends all our lives. I too ended up moving to the same village as my friend years later, we are still here and still friends.
