Few people would guess that this is a photograph of Lewes Road even with the clue of the cottages. It was taken in 1904 from Woodbine Cottage, Natal Road (shown in other photographs in this album) and shows that stretch of Lewes Road from the Barracks nearly to Moulsecoomb Place. The cottages are Moulsecoomb Villas, which had then only recently been built. On the rising ground in the foreground were built in 1921 the Highway and Southall Avenue, as part of the South Moulsecoomb Council Estate and Lewes Road was widened at the same time.
