Birdsall House and Holderness House, Champion Hill Estate, Camberwell, London
Leconfield House, the most distant, shows in part. In the 1870s there were huge houses along Champion Hill, behind the camera and to the right, with long gardens stretching downhill. The mature trees are a legacy from that time. By 1896 the largest house had gone. The open hillside sloped down to cricket, lawn tennis and athletics grounds. It may be that King's College Hospital had a hand in all this. The Champion Hill Estate, presumably built by London County Council, first appears on a map of 1954-1960 and is still there after about 60 years.
