The Garden of Park House, Park Lane in the 1930s

Donated by William Emery

This collection of lovely old sepia photos of Park House (on Park Lane) and its gardens in around 1930 was passed on to William Emery, the current owner, by a descendant of the original owners, the Rayners, who lived there between c.1920 and c.1933. At that time the address was 14 Broomhall Road.

Imagine the cream teas and games of croquet on the lawn, and the tranquil strolls under┬áthe bowers of the garden, admiring the roses…

Sadly the billiards room was later struck and destroyed by an incendiary bomb during the Blitz of 1940.
