Norwood is a large and varied district of south London, built in the nineteenth century on the range of hills formerly covered by the Great North Wood. It is shared between four boroughs, Croydon, Lambeth, Bromley and Southwark. West Norwood is the original early nineteenth-century village. The breezy Upper Norwood, close to the Crystal Palace, has been an area of expensive housing since the enclosure of the Wood in 1800. South Norwood, on the lower ground, developed as a railway suburb after 1839. Norwood also incorporated parts of Penge, Dulwich, Streatham and Tulse Hill.

The photographs in this book show all of these areas as they were in the first half of the twentieth century.
