What I would like to have is a photograph of #12 Penton Place, Walworth - the home of a 3Xgreat Uncle in 1848.
I did an interesting walk around the area in June last year but the photos that I took then did not turn out at all.
My faint hope is that someone might live near there and be able to send me a digital photo or similar.
Many thanks for your response. No, I am not in London - I am in Perth, Western Australia - so visiting the Borough library will be difficult. Do you have an address for it that I can write to?
Not sure this is what you want, as it is not old enough. The alternative option is on the other side of the road and is walk-up flats. Photo is here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/loafer123/13951518/
This is 12 Pullens Buildings, Penton Place. 9 and 12 are in the same block.
Higher numbers (from 60ish upwards) in Penton Place are still standing, and are Victorian bay fronted houses.

Thankyou for those photos - I think the Pullens buildings are probably what I am after. Do you think that they are as old as 1840s?
You call them walk up flats. Would they have been two bedrooms, family room and kitchen do you think - or smaller than that?
GGGUncle was compositor/ printer. Would he have worked from there or had premises elswhere?
