I am interested to hear from anyone with knowledge of Clapton Buildings Webber Row.
Particularly around 1926 onwards.
Names being researched are william cleary, david and florence hearne nee bennett.
Also does anyone know where I could find old photographs of the mentioned area.
Thankyou very much.
