Cambridge House, Wellesley Road
Cambridge House, Wellesley Road
This picture shows the increasing scale of Croydon's various stages of post-war development. The dinky Cambridge House belongs to the first phase, built in 1955-56 by Howell & Brooks for Norwich Union.
It is dwarfed by the blocks to its left, rear and right; these, in turn, are dwarfed by the most recent development in the background TQ3265 : Development, George Street.
