Bromley-by-Bow Bromley house, Rest center Email joanperry123@hotmail.co.uk  

I lived in the rest center with my mother and brother, men were not allowed to stay so my dad had to get lodgings near by. I wen to Marner Street school then we were re housed to Harold Hill, Romford Essex. I'm not sure of any dates as parents are no longer living along with any other relatives. Can anyone help with any dates. My parents name were Joan + Norman Palmer

Bromley-by-Bow  

 Mail-me . We lived in the Rest Centre for about nine months after the war, as I was only five I cant remember which months. We had to share a large room with three other families, separated only by curtains. I can remember a tragic and fatal accident, when a young lad went into the external lift shaft to retrieve a ball and the counter lift weights dislodged and fell on him, we all ran into our parents to tell them, and we were all told to go back inside because of sight. Also remember between the building and the station there were mountains of broken bricks which we climbed over a wall to get to, one young girl had a lump taken out of her thigh by the metal spikes on top of the wall. We left the Centre and were given a partly condemned house in Bow road, shared with an adult family of four.

Bromley-by-Bow Looking for friend  

I lived in the Alton House flats opposite the Old Palace School around 1933 I was seven then. Went to Marner street until nine years of age-then to Old Palace school. Had a dear and best friend named Edna Green. Then came WW11 and we were both evacuated to a little village in Oxfordshire called Wiggington! Have always thought about my friend and hope someone MIGHT know her where abouts. Enjoy reading others texts too.

Hello there,
I'm now going to test your memory and take you back a very long time ago !
Do you remember that old School on the corner of Bromley High St, and Devons Road, facing "The Rose & Crown" Pub, bye the Horse's watering Trough ???,
If you do,
then I,m going to test you even more !
Do you remember when that old vacant school was used as a government Public Dinner Centre, to provide very cheap meals for the Locals ?
Do you remember Bacon's Electrical shop next to the school,
Do you remember the Bakers shop on the corner of Bruce Road in Devons Road,
Do you remember going to the best place in the world !
The Regal Cinema in Bow Road, where I remember seeing the very first film in Cinamascope -------it was called " Quo Vadis "
I used to go to Marner Street School, and looking back, they were the happiest days of my life, the sad thing, is that I never knew that at the time !!!!

Best wishe's , Tom Old
