Thanks for sharing. Any ideas on where this may have been taken?

I was wondering that... Might be at the top of Rokeby, where the garages are although doesn't look familiar...

Pretty sure that wherever it was taken, if it was on Rokeby Road, it doesn't exist anymore. One side of the road was demolished to building Myatt Garden School. There were also some industrial units on the site where Luxmore Gardens stands. Could have been on of these two places.

You don't see honest faces like those in Brockley anymore

Well you should leave the house more - spread a bit of that honesty around.
