20th Century London caption: This view of Norwood Green shows ivy-clad houses and the Plough Inn on the right. The Plough is the oldest inn in Norwood, being a 17th-century or earlier timber framed building. It was still there in 2005, a 'village pub' in London's suburbs. Around 1900-10, when this picture was taken, the electric tram was coming to this rural area. The tram linked nearby Southall with Shepherd's Bush in 1901 and with Uxbridge in 1904. The coming of the tram is linked to an increase in population in the area which happened at the beginning of the 20th century.
