Hi.
Does anyone know what's happened to Danson Rd. I lived at number 41.
I've just found someone who went to Keyworth School back in the 1950's and who remembers Miss Hunt. Does anyone who also went there remember old Mr Phelan or Mr Bindon. Oh happy days!

Lived in Miverton Street in the 50s 60s. Mr Sidal was head master at Henry Faussett in our day . Remeber him as a very strict disciplinarian. Would love to be able to take a tour of the school one day. Shame about Vauxhall Manor being turned into flats. That school used to have 2 buildings. The other part of the school was for year4. Can't remeber what the area the other building was, but we walked past the Oval Cricket ground. Also remember Bob Whites. All that saw dust on the floor, haha

Hi I have just found this site and found it very interesting.I went to Keyworth school and I remember knocking on the rabbit lady's door. My dad owned 'tooths' sweet shop.My friend was Janet Twort who I kept in touch with for many years but have since lost touch. Iast year on my 70th birthday I had a trip to London and decided to take a look at Braganza st once again.All the memories came flooding back but what a dreary road it now is, the trees are so claustrophobic. I was born at the shop in 1945 and we moved to a village outside of Basingstoke in 1953. I now live in Cornwall.

Kennington Keyworth School  

I went to Keyworth School from 1959 to 1964. Also lived in Braganza St next door to the Tworts and Freemans. Went to Tooths (Roses) with my pocket money. Played on the bomb sites in Gaza St. Other shops in the Street were Butlers, Gunns, United Dairies, Bobs the Green Grocer, there was also a "bag wash" laundery and a grocers, obviously a Welshman in those days, either Davies or Morgans. The Royal George Public House was the centre of the community. My nan and granddad and two uncles and aunts also lived in the street.

It was my cradle

Kennington Richard house  

I lived at 22 Richard House between 1963 and 1969 before moving to the Ethelred Estate with my family. I remember the Tanner, Bright, Smith families in Canute House and the Hibbits, Davis, Woods and other families in Richard House. Had great times growing up with all my friends from the old and new flats and the Guinness Trust on Kennington Park Road. Am now a qualified accountant living in Sutton with my husband.

Kennington STuart McPhail Hall, 1932-2014.  

Does anyone know whether Stuart McPhail Hall, noted cultural studies scholar and Professor Sociology at the Open University and former Director of the Centre for Contempory Culture in Birmingham taught at his this school in the mid-to late 1950s? He taught Georgraphy and Swimming. If anyone was a student of his, would you get back to me. I am writing an article on the history of connections to being a supply teacher and extra-ordinary educator.
