Mid 1950's : Map shows two larger buildings standing in line and connected by a thinner building. Numbered 275 & 276 The Peak and named Gough Hill Quarters. No. 292 The Peak stands seperate nearby. Unsure if 292 is the same building as the 292 in the 1924 map. (www.gwulo.com/atom/22205)

Good work on tracing the history of this lot. It looks as though there have been three generations of building? If you agree, please could you make Places for the earlier two generations and link them together with the "Previous place(s) at this location". That'll give us a timeline for the lot, and I can add the various photos you've noted to the right generation.

I lived at 76 Peak Road from approx 1962 to July 1965 and have several photos I can up load if anyone is interested

Yes please! Always good to see the old houses that are no longer standing.

Your photos will show the previous generation of buildings at this site. We've got a page for them at: https://gwulo.com/node/28292
