The borough dates from the London Government Act of 1899, and includes the greater part of the original ecclesiastical parish of St. Mary Battersea. Under the same Act Penge, formerly a hamlet of Battersea, was constituted a separate urban district...the curious anomalies of local government led to Penge's formation as a separate urban district and its transfer to the county of Kent in 1900. This would join London with neighbouring parishes in 1965. Penge was a wooded district, over which the tenants of Battersea Manor had common of pasture.

Prince Alfred penny push 1962


It took customers at the Prince Alfred Haines street, Nine Elms, just one month to build up this two feet six inch pile of pennies, but they and the guv'nor, Mr William Duckworth, have more ambitious plans for the New Year.

One hundred of the most needy local children will benefit from the customers generosity. The piles will pay for an outing to the circus on January 6 followed by tea in the West End.
