Notes / History A picturesque view of Sutton Road, now more familiar as Bishopsford Road, Mitcham, c.1900.

It is not clear from this grainy image, whether the mounds at the side of the road are flowering plants, or piles of gravel and stone chippings used to fill potholes and resurface the road. Parish authorities were responsible for financing local road repairs during this period
