Alexandra Cottages

In the heart of Penge, SE20

The Alexandra Residents' Association was formed almost 50 years ago, in 1959.

Over the years, it has organised many events. Some of the pictures of such events are displayed on this page.

If you have any photos that you would like to share, please get in touch here. (You can attach the photos or we scan them for you)

Here are some pictures of children’s tea parties from ca. 1964, kindly supplied by Brian, Victor Road.

We would be interested to know who the children are: please get in touch if it is you or you who recognise them.

Here are a few pictures from the mid 1960s, reproduced from photographs kindly loaned by George, Victor Road (and scanned by Shirley, Victor Road).

A tea party at the Holy Trinity Church Hall (that was located on this side of Lennard Road, where the flats are now).


Serving the children are Buster from Edward Road, and George’s late wife Eileen.

The Moore Family (Edward Road) very kindly sent us some photos of a Christmas celebration (1973 or 1974).
