"A hidden past..." Eltham by BluBluBlu

Yet another suburb...

Eltham is 'just another suburb' of London...the usual mix of retail oulets, a few pubs, tacky food outlets like McD's & Pizzahut...so its easy to miss...but it does have some 'jewels' hidden away...as I recently found out...

Past residents include Bob Hope, Frankie Howard, Kate Bush, and Boy George...

    I wonder if the house where Parnell lived with Mrs. O'shea is still standing?

    Bob Hope was born here?! Never would have guessed it. Googled it and he said, Bob Jokes, "I left England at the age of four when I found out I couldn't be king.

    New one on me! Surprised to see an aboriginal grave and a very old golf club here! Good insight on the place!

    Interesting tips. Your advice on direction.."ask a local" is wonderful. I found the cause of death of the aboriginals not quite so surprising.

    I found your fascinating "tidbits" and little "gems" to be quite interesting. The Art Deco house looks most wonderful, and I love pieces of history, and you supplied several. Thanks ever so much.
