St. Margaret. One of London's lost churches, having been demolished in the 1960's. From an old postcard (franked 1907), Bulman Collection. The postcard only says "St. Margaret's - Plumstead", and since the card is franked "Woolwich", I'm making the assumption that this church is the Plumstead in London. If you think otherwise, please let me know.
