Peckham's Past: Alexandra Day in Peckham

I'm loving this video from BFI Films of Peckham in 1913. From YouTube:
Alexandra Rose Day is a charity fundraising event, inaugurated in 1912 on the 50th anniversary of the arrival in England of Alexandra of Denmark for her marriage to the future King Edward VII. This charming film follows a cheerful band of women in Peckham, London, as they sell artificial roses to raise funds for local hospitals.
Can you spot any recognisable buildings from Peckham High Street?
