My fiance and I currently live on Sydenham Road (without wanting to post my address) between the PFC shop/Tesco and the Priory Cottages
We're moving to a 1930's mansion flat in Surbiton next Saturday but would love to remember the little flat that has been our home for the past year. We're currently attempting to find an old picture of our building so that we can frame it, along with old photos of other former residences. The best we've managed to come up with have been fairly modern pictures of the top floor of it (with the ugly modern shops in front having already been built).
We've gathered from research that our building seems to have been built on land on or at the edge of the park belonging to The Priory. I guestimate it's build date as between 1900-1910 due to the high ceilings, long windows and chimney stacks but it could easily be older.
Any help you can give us in tracking down a photo would be much appreciated

We found another photo of the side of my houseviewtopic.php?t=4142
The photo in question is about half way down the thread, two photos beneath the clipping about the Naborhood Centre.
It seems the house was NEXT to The Priory, the remainder of which was the garage next door (the land which is now the Tesco, the PFC shop and the road divides it from my house). The Priory itself is the white building within the same picture and in the two pictures that follow. It must have been a beauty when in its full form!
