And for comparison, my neighbour Warwick has just sent me this 1978 photo.  As he points out, note the size of the trees!

Good question Louis. If you look at the pictures of the Cloudesley Square earlier on in the gallery, above, there were certainly no trees in 1960 or 1970 - it looks quite different! Whereas I'm fairly confident I can remember there being small trees when I moved in in 1990. So my guess is they were planted as part of gentrification in the 1980s. Does anyone know for sure?

When were the trees planated?

Ta for creating the web site. Really great pics of the area. Need some of the school, Doves yard and the inside of your favourite watering hole with a bottle of Fullers London Pride!

A beautiful and well designed garden belonging to Gilvrie and David Lock. Well worth a visit to pick up ideas!

Who are the owners of the lovely window boxes?
