Palmerston Road was previously a tree-lined avenue.

In 1850 the owner of Bowes Manor, Sir Thomas Wilde, was created Baron Truro of Bowes. Bowes Manor was situated between what are now Kelvin Road and Melbourne Roads.

When Wilde died in 1855, the estate was purchased by Alderman Sidney. Having been a successful tea merchant, he became an alderman of the City of London in a position he held for 36 years. We was Lord Mayor in 1853-4.

Sidney developed the western border of the Bowes estate, building Palmerston Road in 1870 on what previously had been a tree lined private road with a gateway at either end.

Sidney built 13 large houses backing onto the New River, between Whittington Road and Bowes Roads.

As well as his City of London duties, Sidney was also Liberal MP for Stafford in separate spells. This is the reason for the Whig politicians celebrated in local street names: Grenville, Kelvin, Melbourne, Palmerston, Russell and Spencer.

Sidney died in 1889 and the estate and farm were divided up for development in 1899. Sidney Avenue, Melbourne Avenue, Kelvin Avenue, Belsize Avenue and Spencer Avenue were laid out, east to west, across the grounds.

Ethelburga Estate
The Ethelburga Estate - named after Ethelburga Road - was an LCC development dating between 1963–65. According to the Wikipedia, it has a "pleasant knitting together of a series of internal squares". I have to add that it’s extremely dull :)

Angel & Trumpet, Stepney Green
The Angel & Trumpet Public House in Stepney Green was run by my ancestors in the 1930’s. Unfortunately, it was a victim on WWII and was badly damaged and subsequently demolished. I have one photograph that I believe to bethe pub, but it doesn’t show much more that my Great Aunt cleaning the steps.

Blackfriars (1959 - 1965)
I lived in Upper Ground from 1959 to 1964 I was 6 years old my parents Vince and Kitty run the Pub The Angel on the corner of Upper Ground and Bodies Bridge. I remember the ceiling of the cellar was very low and almost stretched the length of Bodies Bridge. The underground trains run directly underneath the pub. If you were down in the cellar when a train was coming it was quite frightening
