Market Gardens at Burgess Park

Our image is an extract from Stanfords 1862-71 map of London. Albany Road is the main road about a third of the way down; St George's Church is at the lower left; the present-day Chumleigh Gardens are marked as 'Friendly Female Asylum'.

At Burgess Park we show another map of the same area, after it was built up and before it was converted into a park.
