I understand using Southwark, London as the city, but given that cities are divided into suburbs or towns (on Long Island, New York, you have Nassau County; Town of Hempstead, Woddmere, as an example - when you address a letter, you use Woodmere, Nassau County, the entry for Town of Hempstead is optional, and in Toronto and Montreal, they have gone through mergers, and in Montreal - demerger, so rather than addressing to arrondissement Cote-Saint-Luc, Ville de Montreal, Quebec, we now have simply Ville de Cote-Saint-Luc, Quebec, while Cotes-des-Neiges is a suburb of Montreal (still) and is addressed as Cotes-des-Neiges, Montreal, Quebec -
So like Southwark, perhaps we need an additional field before city, labelled suburb or arrondissement.

Another way might be to enter Southwark as the city, and London as the Parish (perhaps we need to relabel - Parish / Municipality), or Woodmere as city and Town of Hempstead as Parish / Municipality.

I would put 1 Gramps Lane as the street address, "Southwark, London"
as the city, "Greater London" as the county (or Middlesex if the
address is really old), UK as the country and SE in the postal code.

But that's just one approach among many.  I think the key is to be
consistent, using the same structure for other countries and time
periods as well.
