The Roger Armstrong Collection: Historic Mitcham cottages

The Society is grateful to surveyor Roger Armstrong, for 40 years Development Manager at Solon Housing Association at Wandsworth, for letting us scan and display his collection of photographs taken in the 1970s and 1980s of historic cottages and houses in Mitcham, many of them timber-framed and weatherboarded. Many of these buildings were demolished and their sites developed, despite the efforts of Roger and Solon to preserve and restore them. However, some were saved and are still with us.
