232 Markhouse Road, Walthamstow

Today we received more fantastic photos from a family who are now in Chepstow but previously lived in 232 Markhouse Road. Susan’s father was a photographer and used to develop his own photos in the bathroom of their flat.

By the time we received these we had already finalised and agreed all of the exhibition layouts, but these were so good we managed to squeeze one into the exhibition. We’re very grateful to Susan for getting in touch.

Susan said of this photo:

“Found this photo of my sister and I, about 1952, reaching up for apples from Mr and Mrs Baker’s apple tree. Mrs Baker lived in the downstairs flat below the Chapmans.  The Bakers and Chapman’s flat was the next flat after ours going towards the church.”
