Clapham Common c1912

The Clock Tower, Clapham Common, South London by J. M. of Vauxhall. The tower is still there.

In this magnificent view of the same area by Card House (probably taken from the roof of the Alexandra Hotel) you can see the Plough Inn (now part of the O'Briens chain) and an early cinema. It is interesting to see from the Google Streetview that the pub now has a mock-tudor exterior.


  1. Wow, there's so much to look at here, especially on the first card...the ladies and their hats, the man reading the paper, the bicyclist. Wonderful.

  2. This is so fun! What a great idea. Also I love how authentic you seem to be.
