This is a picture of Annie Morris sometime around 1911 outside her home at 25 Court Yard.
She was born in 1848 at 4 Pound Place, and almost her whole life was spent in Eltham.
She was a cook and may have worked for Captain North at Avery Hill and through her life we have a snap shot of what Eltham had been and what it was becoming.
Her grandfather had set up a farrier’s business in Eltham in 1803 on what is now the Library, and “attended the old Parish Church in his leather apron.”*
All of which makes her a little piece of Eltham’s history.
