Life on the Abraham Estate, a photo album

The photos above have been very kindly provided by Carol Buxton, now in the West Country.

These flats are the Leyton side of Francis Road with the stairs outside.  Our flats on the Leytonstone side have inside staircases for the upper flat, one going up to the flat and another coming down to the garden and where the toilet used to be at the back. Angela Bellwood, 27 June 2017
