7. Somewhere between Peckham Rye and Embankment in London?

Close ... but you would probably have cause a tram to get to this location if you were between Peckham Rye and the Embankment.

Turning left from Grove Vale into East Dulwich Road.

1. Southern Rly O2, photo taken between 1932 and 1945. Headcode may suggest somewhere near Southampton, along with the bridge in the background. The Southampton Dock to Brockenhurst was one route for the headcode. There were a number of others but only Exeter to Ilfracombe might tie in with the river behind.

Railway, loco, I agree.  None of those routes though - somewhere between the places you mention.

Yes.  My label says "Goose Green" and Google confirms these two roads border Goose Green.

1. Seaton (at least the bridge looks like the one between Seaton and Axmouth)

Yes, that seems to be the one, before the new bridge was built.
The correct headcode for this line was one disc, right smokebox, during the period from 1934.

My initial thought was also Seaton before the new bridge was built

I like to travel.  It lets me feel I'm getting somewhere.

Was the original bridge the first to be made of concrete, or is it the present one ?

Yes - it is Seaton; included because John M was a tram driver on the Seaton Tramway for many years.

Number 8
Could that be in East Anglia, the sidings being used for the grain trade?. Fakenham has some similarities but is mentioned as an illustration
