SE5, Albany Road

The plaque was placed on the corner of Calmington Road and Albany Road. It was lost when the area was transformed into Burgess Park. Calmington Road no longer exists but our page for Burgess Park has a map showing the old street layout, before the Park was created. This corner can be seen on that map, upper centre.
