Hi All

Does anyone have old photo's of Lynton Road, and can anyone tell me the door numbering system they had ie.did the numbers start at Dunton Road end No.1 and increase toward St James's Road?
Also the plot at the corner of Lynton Road and Dunton road back in the 50's I think there was a pub there, can anyone throw some light on this?

I think there was a posting about the name of the pub some time back.I'll see if I can find it.

Just found it quite a long posting october last year, pub was called The Greyhound.

I recommend that you contact Southwark Local History Library - which is currently at Peckham Library (second floor) whilst the John Harvard Library in Borough High St is refurbished.
Most of the resources currently on open access in the library will be available at Peckham library e.g. books, pamphlets, cuttings, illustrations, maps, directories, electoral registers, microfilm/fiche, publications for sale. Archives and reserve stock items will be unavailable for the whole of the relocation period. Their email is [email protected] and theyu are an excellent source of photos.
