Coldharbour Lane: names before numbers

Before street numbering began in the 1870’s blocks of buildings had individual names. Today you can still see this on a number of terraces that still exist.

This is Dover Terrace which runs from 171 Coldharbour Lane, the Dover Castle pub now open as The Junction to 189 Coldharbour Lane.
