Does anyone recognise the location of this photo. Ive been told that its location is at the junction of Deptford High Street and Albury Street, and that the street sign does say Albury Street SE8 albeit this copy renders it indecipherable. I don't think it is but it could be the east end joining Church Street and Creek Road. The Pub on the right could be the "Kings Head". Photo was described as pre 1918 but the car boot just showing at the right seems a later model than 1918. I was thinking about 1935 to 1940's Any suggestions would be welcome.
