near to Streatham, Lambeth, Great Britain

78-100 Streatham High Road
78-100 Streatham High Road
The corner turreted buildings in this stretch of the High Road were built first, c1905, with the sections between filled in as demand arose. This group is of red brick with painted and stone decoration. It is within the Streatham High Road and Streatham Hill Conservation Area.
The course of Streatham High Road has been a major highway between London and Sussex since Roman times. Its current appearance is largely attributable to two major spells of development. The first was during the late C19th following the opening of Streatham Hill station in 1856, and the second was after 1911 when the line to Victoria was electrified. Though much-maligned and undoubtedly blighted by heavy traffic, closer examination reveals that the road is lined with a number of interesting buildings, some of which reflect the period between the wars when Streatham was a fashionable centre of entertainment.
