A rare view of the Camberwell Free Grammar School. The engraving shows the late seventeenth century house, with pitched roof, with boys playing in the garden in the foreground. Alexander Jephson had become a master of Wilson’s School, Camberwell at the end of the seventeenth century and his descendants were subsequently headmasters of the school, which became Camberwell Free Grammar School, for a further 150 years. The Jephsons are still commemorated in Camberwell by Jephson Street, near King’s College Hospital.
