chantel there is a lot more than edgware out there

think you are absolutely right 38 years ago i lived there ,not to bad .. nice high st and a great salt beef shop owned by to Greek brothers //magnificent food / its easy to become a t v stay at home there . thats why i saw the light and lived abroad ,if you are young enough , do the same /it was becoming a money grabbing institute ,people coming from all over the world getting free food & money ,while others just making it , think its better to live on a island poor sharing the quality of normality ,went back and saw for myself how things had changed CHANTEL do your self a favor and board a airplane to some fare off land not so greedy with more of what god has in store for you ,

Kingston Road E11

I lived in Kingston Road in the 1950's and 60's.
I left in 1966/67 and believe Kingston Road was demolished soon after.
I have a few of photos taken in the street, including a couple of the street party for the Coronation.
I remember the Fisher, Brookes, Sharp, and Craske families. There were also a brother and sister - Norman and Sandra, but their surname escapes me at the moment.
Did you live in Kingston Road?

Harrys and Leons

Probably know a lot of you who have posted these comments. No doubt we once played together. Spitting gob certainly brings back memories. Bet you don't remember black bob the dog who chased the cars. What about the wood yard by the back of Great Eastern buildings. How we used to raid Harry's and try to swipe a sweetie or two. Leon was too smart and kept an eye on everyone. What about Chutlers if thats the correct spelling on Brick Lane. Used to go and play table football there. That was all back the late sixties and early seventies.

Wheeler House vs Great Eastern building.

Used to live in Wheeler House back in the sixties. Had some great times as kids with the mob from Great Eastern Buildings. Does any remember Trumans brewery and how we used to raid the back locking for crates of beer. Remember the creepy middle block on the left and roof and thought it to be haunted. Does any remember Gibbo who played the guitar on the ground floor. Must admit he was rather good.

Does anyone remember Randal Slade, the grocers at the end of Woodside Avenue? Also, Busby's, a small grocers half way down Woodside Avenue? I was born at number 54 in 1954 and can remember the latter shop (now returned to residential use) as a small child.

I believe Randal Slade had a bakery at the end of the avenue too, and as a child, I remember getting free 'rejects' of Palm Toffee from there on a Sunday morning.  Mail-me

an extract from Dr kingsley,s page as he published it on his page I only hope that the gentleman will not object to my copying it
between the time I was born in 1948 till 1957, we lived upstairs at 18 Fountain Road, Stoke Newington. I attended Tyssen School in Old Hill Street, Clapton and Lampard Grove (Grove Lane) cheder. At that time, my grandparents lived above the baker's shop in Old Hill Street, just one turning from the school - this being quite convenient for a little kid. In May 1957, we moved to 43 Rostrevor Avenue, South Tottenham.

Channel 4 Series Seeking Parent/Mums Groups

Maverick Television are making an exciting new TV series for Channel 4 about weight loss. The series will explore new motivational theories behind successful weight loss and test various diets and approaches with those wanting to battle the bulge. The show will be presented by Dr Christian Jessen (Embarrassing Bodies) and will provide a great insight into the world of weight loss.

We are currently looking for already established groups to take part in one of the features within the programme - and act as focus groups for some of the diet challenges/experiments we hope to explore.

It would be fantastic to hear from you if this is something that your mothers/parent group might be interested in speaking to us about.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I vaguely recall that I suffered a blow to the head whilst playing football and finished up in hospital. But I was introduced by our teachers to natural history, which I have loved ever since.
