Not sure if this link will help but they have a map of the area from around 1800:

cheers johno. The free map isn't in good resolution, but gives an idea of what the area was like, although i can't pinpoint the location of Selhurst Park.
I don't really need mapping from pre-1800, as potentially contaminating processes didn't really get going until well after 1800, and contamination is specifically what i look for.
Interesting , on a personal level, nonetheless

EDIT : I'm not sure if I have the correct map

An interesting post and a reminder that Croydon's first professional club was not Palace but Croydon Common who occupied The Nest before us.

The 2 clubs were great rivals for a while before Common's untimely demise.

Dinosaurs were last seen there in 1984 when Status Quo were performing.

All very interesting, Ali.

Talk of Croydon Common reminds me that my grandad was a Common fan until they folded and he switched his allegiance, although he did also see Palace play at Herne Hill.

The dinosaurs were moved to Crystal palace Park in the 1850's where they remain to this day.

I guess Croydon was a dump in the 1800's and not much has happened since. I always understood Selhurst Park was built on a cemetry but perhaps it was an ancient burial ground for those who walked on all fours.

A Map of 1872 shows why our stadium got its name. This is the earliest mapping I have of our stadium's location

But it's not actually the location. Selhurst Park (shown here) was originally the bit between Holmesdale Road and Selhurst Road with Whitworth Road and Oliver Grove on either side. Burgoyne Road now cuts it in half and that must have been added later.


 


The crowd is outstanding, and especially with the penalty after 44 minutes it was clear when we came out after half-time the welcome would be pretty loud and not too friendly. Crystal Palace wanted to strike back, so that was all clear. This is a wonderful place to play football - Jurgen Klopp

There was also a club called South Norwood that played in the FA Cup from 1872 to 1879 who were 'one of the best in the country'

Quite amazing how area get built up. I always wondered what it would be like to time travel back to the 1800's or earlier to see what Croydon was like before urbanisation


Probably a dump then .Some things and places never change!.
