I had a look this morning at those addresses. There is no 132 Old Kent Road
, but number 134 is a block on the corner of OKR and Massinger Street, so 132 must have been across the street where the Lidl store is now. Maybe someone else knows what was there before Lidl?
338 East Street is one of a terrace of 4 new-ish (maybe 1980s) buildings close to the junction of Old Kent Road
. It is divided into two flats, Flat A and Flat B. The original East Street houses stop at 334, then 336, 338, 340 and 340a are the new terrace block, then the Indian takeaway is number 342. I asked at the shops opposite if anyone knew what happened to the houses that were there before, and no-one did, although apparently at least one of the residents in the new block has been in the area for many years.
Anyway, if you want to contact the current residents of Flat A or Flat B, the postcode is SE17 2SX.
Hope that is helpful. I did take some photos, so if you want to send me a private message with your email address, I will send them to you.
