As a young boy at the tail end of WW 2, on Sundays my mates and I used to catch the train from Upper Sydenham station (fares were in pennies) which was at the top of Wells Road and go through the tunnel to the next station ( I can't remember the name) and visit Hornimans park. It had a children's playground there with swings and slides etc. With H+S rules now I expect it has gone. We then used to go to the museum. If we were lucky they would show a film or Magic Lantern show. Sometimes they would get an historic mechanical clock working which had figures going round doing all sorts of actions.
I know this is a late reply but I have just read the post and it triggered fond memories. I doubt if I would recognise the area now.
