Original John Smith development: 1910 – 1930

*Original John Smith style means those properties which were part of John Smith’s original development 1911 to circa 1930.  There are later properties that were built to emulate or “pay tribute” to that style. e.g. 18 Leigh Road (date?) 33 Blenheim Avenue (2000)

Some properties built during the original development may have been built by John Smith to different designs, though are more likely designed by other architects (TBC). This includes many of the houses on the west (common) side of Westbourne Crescent.

Later infill development

The majority of houses later than 1930 were built on infill sites, for example  36 -44 Blenheim Avenue were built on the large plot that originally served as John Smith’s yard and offices. Others built on are plots that presumably did not sell during the original development. Some houses were built following WWII due to  bomb damage (10 and 32 Oakmount Avenue).
