I remember the old workhouse in Westmoreland Road! It was derelict and looked very creepy with its broken windows. My Nan lived in Kinglake St and we would either go to East St via Alvey St, or down Westmoreland Rd to come out in Walworth Road
near the Co-op. As far as I remember the Aylesbury took some years to complete, and there were quite a lot of building sites to negotiate.
Those Booth poverty maps are fascinating. they are available, together with transcripts of the notebooks online at the LSE website. booth at lse
