Number 66 Brixton Road in Kelly’s Directories 1881 to 1928

Number 66 is the left hand half of Oval Tandoori restaurant as shown in the modern photo above. This property is one of four that make up this small block that does not appear in Kelly’s Directories until 1891, perhaps due to the fact that it was originally residential.

The property was predominantly occupied by Home & Colonial Stores, a kind of Victorian/Edwardian Tesco – see more about the chain here.
