The text on the reverse of the card features little-known facts about the area, in relation to the illustrations:

Brockley “It is believed that the name ‘Brockley’ is either an Anglo Saxon term meaning ‘a place in a woodland clearing’, or is derived from the old English word ‘Broc’, meaning ‘badger’.”

Forest Hill “Ted Christmas was a popular builder, responsible for many of Forest Hill’s beautiful properties built in the early 1900s.”

Honor Oak “Legend has it that the name Honor Oak derives from when Queen Elizabeth I ‘picnicked’ with Sir Richard Bulkeley under a local oak tree in 1602. Close by sits St. Augustine’s, with its distinctive turret.”
