Telegraph Hill 100 years ago

Courtesy of Lewisham Heritage, here's some old picutres of Telegraph Hill Park in around 1910 (top) and 1905 (bottom) -click to enlarge. The views are both of the bottom park, with the bandstand where the football cage currently stands. Interesting that even then nobody could quite agree where it was (Brockley? Hatcham? - Lewisham has filed the pictures under 'New Cross').
(From the same collection, Brockley Central has highlighted a picture of haymaking in Crofton Park)
