Starting in 1969, David Hepher was to spend five years painting suburban house fronts in south London. Number 21 is one of a row of Edwardian semi-detached houses in Townley Road, East Dulwich. Its front garden, panelled door, stained glass and bay windows are typical of a nostalgic kind of architecture that mushroomed in the interwar period around British towns and cities, alongside expanding transport networks.
