Old Kent Road, Southwark, London
One of south London's most famous streets, the Old Kent Road follows the route of the Roman Watling Street. It is shown here in the late 19th century. A horse-drawn tram is seen outside Fletcher's Haircutting Rooms. The street was often lined with stalls and barrows selling all manner of wares. The road was the inspiration for a Victorian music hall song, "Knocked 'em in the Old Kent Road".
