Old Oak Farm (sketch, nineteenth century)

The farm, at the end of its existence, was a notable stud farm. By 1845 it consisted of over 368 acres divided into 32 fields.

In 1903 housing development was accelerating and the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, who owned it, decided to sell land.

Some of the farmland was assigned to the ground that became the White City exhibition site and a northward extension of Bloemfontein Road.
