I had this photograph taken on 6 December 1964, because changes here were being predicted. The main point of the interest is the detached white building. Standing in a fairly large area of ground, it was built in the late 1860s and was quite different from all the other houses in this street. Known at first as Fuchsia Cottage, and then as Verbena Cottage, these names give the clue to the use to which the house and its extensive grounds were put for almost its long life. This was as a florists and nursery, which seems finally to have been given up during the Second World War.
