The Toll Gate At New Cross
Slightly off-topic for the penultimate photo from the Greenwich section of Harriet’s family album today – the tollgate at New Cross.
From the clothes I’d say mid-late 19th Century, and either far enough away in time or geography from the pair of rival train stationsl but I don’t know New Cross well enough to be able to imagine where the hell this would have been. From my limited knowledge, to be honest it looks more like the Southern end of Deptford High Street, where the big anchor is, but I guess our esteemed Dame would know more about that than me.
I did a quick google of Allsopp, and only came up with a modern building project, Will (spelled wrongly) and Kirstie…
So, folks – any guesses?
