Talk: Early South Norwood Part 1 - Place

Besides a hamlet called Blind Corner, a part-time beer house and a few cottages around a crossroads there was little else to speak of South Norwood in 1800 - not even the place name existed.

Yet by the 1850's it was beginning to grow into a significant suburb firstly of Croydon, then of London. This talk, the first of three, looks at some of the features of the topography and built environment that brought about this change during the mid-19th and early twentieth century.
