Old Oval: As time goes by

Old Oval: As time goes by

Neighbourhood architects, Rolfe Judd, has its offices on Claylands Road SW8 in what was once a Congregational Chapel. (See above) It’s always been a local firm, starting out in premises on Kennington Road in 1968 and moving to its present site in 1982.

It now employs more than seventy architects and town planners and works on upscale projects at the Oval cricket ground and Nine Elms Point in Vauxhall. They recently held a summer fete where they displayed pictures of our neighbourhood from bygone days.

Kate Ludden, who works there as a business administrator, kindly sent me copies of the pictures which I thought you might like to see in case you missed their event.

I’ve mixed their shots with ones I took today.

One thought on “Old Oval: As time goes by

  1. I live in Claylands road and saw the pictures during their summer fete. Pity I didn’t take pictures of their premises before they installed the dreadful fluorescent light display and the totally inappropriate artificial grass. It would have been an interesting before and after.
    Doesn’t say much for their artistic flair.
