Uniforms : Postman on the left, and on the right could be 2 policemen ! There were 2 types of police helments in use in the 1880's https://gmic.co.uk/topic/63484-1880s-metropolitan-police-uniform-de...  this area though is presumably County of Middlesex and not Metropolitan, at the time ? Could the houses on the extreme left still exist ?

If you look at this slightly later picture of the pound, you can see on the right the houses that stand there today. All the houses look to be of a uniform style suggesting tha they were built at the same time. So, anything in the photo above was probably swept away.
