The address was 102 Elibank and we were the last house on the street. There was an alley way between our hut and Oxleas Wood (although we never knew it had a name -- it was just Crown woods). I'm the one standing and my sister was still in arms which dates it as about the spring of 1923. Photos were an expensive item back then so this is the only one I have.

This is a copy of a postcard kindly sent to me of Well Hall Road, entitled WELL HALL RD, GARDEN CITY SE. 
Frances Ward, from the local history library informed me that this is the Progress Estate. When it was first built it was one of several "Garden Cities" planned in London. The Progress Estate was built in 1915 in 9 months to house Woolwich Arsenal workers, to the design of Mr Frank Bains, later Sir Frank. He was knighted for his work on the estate.
