we were number 52 on the map - 1840

In 1840, which is when this map was first published, we were number 52. Unfortunately it’s impossible to see if there was a basement area then or if it has already been filled in (cf. the photograph of our basement window last week). Even though this row of houses has been massively rebuilt (because of both bombing and development) basically it is still the same as it was when first built in the early C18th.
