Numbers 60 to 70 (1901 - 1939)
A builder, Robert Maeers (1842-1919), applied to build six houses on plots 134 to 139 on the Lincoln House Estate on 5 October 1901. He received approval on 8 October 1901. These would become numbers 60 to 70 Rodenhurst Road (60 is plot 139). Robert Maeers was born in Northleigh, Devon. In 1901 he was living in 118 Elms Road with his wife Georgina, nee Bagwell. They had four children, Allan, Edwin, Alice, and Harriet, born between 1863 and 1873.
Alice Maeers was married to John Rawlins. Harriet Maeers was married to William Street.
Three of the six houses first appear on the electoral register in 1904:
Daniel Mescal “Ferncroft”
William Francis Street “Hillsboro”
Henry Elkin “Montrose”

By the 1905 electoral register all six are occupied:

Daniel Mescal “St Senans”
Henry Robert Honeywood “Grasmere”
John Rawlins “Iveydene”
William Francis Street “Hillsboro”
Walter Ernest Manning “St Hilda”
Henry Elkin “Montrose”

By 1906 house numbers replace names:

Daniel Mescal 70
Henry Robert Honeywood 68
John Rawlins 66
William Francis Street 64
Walter Ernest Manning 62
Henry Elkin 60

It’s not clear whether number 70 changed from “Ferncroft” to “St Senans” or possibly Daniel Mescal moved houses.

In any event, it can be seen that Robert Maeers’ two daughters are living in numbers 64 and 66, with, according to local information, an interconnecting door. In the 1911 census William Street is shown as a banker’s clerk. John Rawlins is a chartering clerk in shipping. Robert Maeers and his wife are also living at this address, Robert being shown as a retired builder.

By 1939 all the houses are in different ownership except number 60, where the Elkins are still in residence.

Sir Walter adds....
All the ground facing Wirtemberg Street at Chip and Cross Streets is being levelled for building and the old houses are disappearing fast. The small streets leading through into little Manor Street are very clean and tenanted by poor though respectable people, but little Manor Street is dirty, small, and narrow. Manor Street to Larkhall Rise is a wide fairly clean thoroughfare of mixed shops and houses which improves towards the north. The same may be said of Wirtemberg Street, which commences poorly, but from the Board School north is far better than at the Clapham end.

Milson Road (1908 - 1954)
My grandparents and great grandparents and great great grandparents the Manley family lived at 33 Milson Road from 1908 to 1935. My grandad was born at 33 Milson Road. His parents George and Grace had all four of their chidren there. When his father Edward died his mother moved to 67 Milson in 1935 Road and lived there until 1954 (records found so far, it may be longer). Before that they lived in the Porten Road. I wonder if there is anyone that used to know them? My grandad was Charles ’Ted’ Manley, his parents were called George and Grace and George’s parents were called Edward and Bessie. George worked in a garage and Edward was a hairdresser.

My great great grandfather lived in Time Villa, Southwood Rd around 1901. He owned several coffee houses in Whitechapel and in South London, including New Time Coffee House so either his house was named after the coffee house or vice versa.

Due to the steepness of Brixton Hill, it was difficult for two horses to pull a tram full of passengers. As a result, an Act of Parliament was obtained in 1890 to allow the London Tramways Company (formerly known as the Metropolitan Street Tramways Company) to build a cable line. This cable line would replace the existing horse tram service from Kennington to Brixton Water Lane and continue all the way up to Telford Avenue at the top of Brixton Hill. The concept of cable traction was already in use in San Francisco, and it was first implemented in the UK on Highgate Hill in North London in 1884. The cable was composed of steel wire strands wrapped around a one-inch diameter rope, which extended almost six miles in length. This was twice the length of the actual route. The cable ran underground between the tram lines within a concrete conduit that had a small open slot along the rope. The small human-operated tractor or "gripper" car utilised this slot to grip onto the cable and pull the passenger tramcar. If a tramcar was traveling from Brixton Hill to Westminster Bridge, the gripper car would be detached at Kennington and replaced by a pair of horses. Passengers remained in their seats during this transition. The cable moved continuously at a maximum speed of 8 miles per hour. A special depot was constructed on Streatham Hill, opposite Telford Avenue, to house the cars, horses, and steam-powered winding gear for the cable. The cable service began operating in December 1892. In 1894, another Act was obtained to extend the cable line southwards to the Tate Library on Streatham High Road, and this section was operational by the end of 1895. The cable cars ran until 1904.

Wirtemberg Street is a lost street of Clapham. At the time of the First World War, the street was probably renamed as a result of anti-German feeling. Mirroring the royal family’s own rebranding, the Wirtemberg Arms pub was renamed the Windsor Arms at the same time.
