Lewisham Local History Centre (in the main library at Lewisham) has a wonderful set of records called Drainage Applications. Whenever a building was connected to the main drainage system, detailed plans had to be submitted to the local authority for approval. However, they give far more than just drainage information. They often give detailed building plans, the name of the builder and, if you are lucky, the name of the architect. and, of course, the date of the application gives a clue as to when they were built.
