    Interesting to see that the area now known as Oval used to be called Holland Town, I wonder when that name died out?

      It seems to have died out gradually over time once the land was sold on, there are still reminders here and there, on Vassall Road is a ‘Holland Town’ community centre for example… The fact that it was never officially the name for the area probably didn’t help the name’s survival either.
