Jan15 - The St John's and St Clement's school building is still there but has been converted into residential accommodation, so its appearance has scarcely altered, except it now has plants and greenery all around the playground and buildings.
The much loved (by school children) ice cream/sweet shop, Guiliano's, on the opposite corner, is now a Thai restaurant.
There are fewer shops than there used to be, as some properties have been converted into housing, including the old police station on the corner of Upland and Crystal Palace Roads. The new police station in Lordship Lane which replaced it has been demolished and been replaced by a new primary school, so we no longer have a police station in East Dulwich. Nor do we see the mounted police or police horses which were a regular sight in the local streets and in Dulwich Park while the horses were stabled there.
