More about Ted Christmas from Steve Grindlay http://sydenhamforesthillhistory.blogspot.com/2008/11/spirit-of-christmas.html
And the conservation area that is close to approval: http://www.foresthillsociety.com/2018/09/christmas-conservation-area.html
Being close to the new conservation area, as I am, I get to enjoy these distinct South London homes. Though I’m glad I’m not in the conservation area. Nightmare. I like the quirkiness of Christmas’ naming conventions. But most I love the interiors. At least those which are still intact.
Running Post is one of my favourite history blogs for the region. I’d recommend anyone with an interest to follow Paul on his Twitter account or sign up for notification from his blog site. He’s been doing some great blogs on the area’s suffragette movement.
