St John the Evangelist - Spire
The top of the church spire fell off during WW2 (presumably during a bombing raid ?) and for many years after that the spire had a flat top.
I don’t know when it was restored.
Definitely not in the early fifties when I went to Sunday School there.

Correction re Ossington Street
In the Wikipedia date of 1837 for the renaming of Victoria Grove as Ossington Street, the two last figures appear to have been transposed from the likely source, London County Council, Names of Streets (1905) quoted in T F T Baker, Diane K Bolton and Patricia E C Croot, ’Paddington: Bayswater’, in A History of the County of Middlesex: Volume 9, Hampstead, Paddington, ed. C R Elrington (London, 1989), pp. 204-212. British History Online ptth;:’www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/middx/vol9/pp204-212 [accessed 10 July 2023]. "During the 1830s Victoria Grove (renamed Ossington Street in 1873) (fn. 48) was laid out from the Uxbridge road close to the boundary, on part of Gravel Pit field." This makes sense, as John Evelyn Denison, a former Speaker of the House of Commons, was created 1st Viscount Ossington in 1873.

No 36 Upper East Smithfield
My great great grandfather was born at No 36 Upper East Smithfield and spent his early years staring out at a "dead wall" of St Katharine’s Docks. His father was an outfitter and sold clothing for sailors. He describes the place as being backed by tenements in terrible condition and most of the people living there were Irish.

Name origin
Interestingly South Lambeth derives its name from the same source as Lambeth itself - a landing place for lambs.

But South Lambeth has no landing place - it is not on the River Thames
