2 to 38 Upper Green East

Two identically constructed rows of shops with flats above on the south side of Upper Green East, Mitcham. All are numbered even, with the first block being numbers 2 to 16 and the second from 18 to 38, ascending to the east of the Fair Green. Postcodes are CR4 2PA for no.s 2 to 14; CR4 2PB for 14A through to 38.

This birds-eye view from Bing shows that each pair of properties forms a ‘T’ shape, with the top of the T facing the street.

These blocks were probably built in the late 1920s as there is no mention of this part of Upper Green East in the 1925 street directory, and these ads appear in the 1929 town guide.
