An acquaintance from north London has asked me a) what was on the site of Mandela Way
SE1 prior to the road being there, and b) when was the name Mandela Way
first adopted for that particular road.
I have googled like a man possessed, but other than sites that talk about the Rail depot there, I can find no info about specifically WHEN the name Mandela Way
was first used there.
Nelson Mandela was jailed in 1964, and released around 1990 I think, so I'm guessing that Mandela Way
SE1 was named in the seventies, but that's just a guess, any advance on that?
