Thanks everyone for your help, Queen's road is now called Queenstown road, 209 is actually the house I grew up in and still live In now! I just can't seem to find out when the house was built. The little cottages round the corner in Broughton Street going up the back way to Clapham Common have plaques on the front saying 1874, so I wonder if the houses on Queenstown road were built around the same time?

So is your house shown here or is it in the gaps on housing on both sides of the road?

I can never really make those maps out lol, but there are gaps on the street for back roads and a roundabout. Thanks for the link.

If you click on Josie's link then press the side by side option at the top you will see the present location too and the old map side by side.

204 on modern google maps looks to be just south of the station of that name, and before the first rail track crosses over, so lots of gaps there.
