Thomas and Christiana's
son George was born 6th of March 1904 at 3 Ivy Terrace Myron Place
Lee (Lewisham). Charles Booth the founder
of the Salvation Army produced a poverty map of London in 1899.
The report (shown left) shows his comments on Myron Place which
appears to be a relatively poor area. The maps below both date
from this time and show the colour coded Booth Poverty Map (left)
and a large scale map
the individual houses in Myron Place. Although Myron Place exists
today by name, the area has completely redeveloped with no trace
remaining of the orignal houses.
