I love this picture. It’s so rare to see average everyday street scenes from Victorian London, particularly this part of Victorian London – the suburbia of those with enough to live comfortably.
I lived nine (yes, I counted them!) streets from here back in 2001-2002. It’s funny how little has changed. Sure, the clothes are different, and there’d be cars parked on the sides of the streets, but really this picture could as easily be from yesterday as from152 years ago.
