Inscription

These model houses were made for Vauxhall Park in 1949 by Edgar Wilson of Norwood. He had made other sets of houses but only these and a set in Melbourne, Australia, remain. These houses were restored in 2001 by local resident and friend of Vauxhall Park, Mr Nobby Clark. They were unveiled in June 2001 by local MP for Vauxhall, Ms Kate Hoey.
