queens road


Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone knows of any history in queens road. I moved in a few years ago and have wondered about the history of queens road before it was actually called queens road. ive looked all over online and haven't found anything to help with my questions. All I've found were a couple of old pictures of football groups which haven't really been helpful. I would just like to know the history of queens road before it was a council estate in 1980.

@r21ewwq - I don't know the year the estate was built but there is some info in the book(s) that Evan Martin had published. 

A map from 1920-21, published in 1924, does not show the estate, just The Palace theatre.

The first map, I can find, that shows the estate is from 1938 - published in 1947.

The estate was built on The Palace Fields, next to The Palace Theater.

The First photo of the Kinks Road houses is from the 1930’s in an Evan Martin book.
