Walworth Trafalgar St (NELSON SCHOOL)  

I went to this school from about 1936 to 1939 then was evacuated with the school to Martock in Somerset,with possibly half the schools kids and staff.It was known as the Nelson Martock school,when i left it in late 1943 to come back to work in London,the master in charge was Mr Henry who went to martock in 1939,the head mistress back in London was Miss Byron.Ihave been collecting postcards of South London for about 40 years but i have not got one in my 20,000 plus cards nor have i ever seen one.East lane yes and quite a few of the Walworth Rd Elephant and castle etc but the back streets of Walworth are incredably scarce if ever they existed,I know a few people in London who cover this area,let me know if you thizn;oc;pospmats*sahc

Walworth TRAFALGAR STREET, WALWORTH  

Hi Terry Did you have any luck with pictures of Trafalgar Street. All my mum's family was born there from the early 1900's so I would be very interested in obtaining copies of anything available out there. Would love to hear back from you.

Walworth cranmead@bigpond.net.au  

I was evacuted with the Nelson School to Somerset in 1939 and billited with the Scammel family at Stapleton Cross and had to walk to the school in Martock with two schoolmates, a Ron Batchum and the other ones surname was Ambrose, I sat next to a Rose Bailey from Bronti Place. I joined the Boy Scouts in Martock and also organised football matches up at Bower Hinton including one Christmas morning. Went back like you in 1943 and was in Mr.Goodsell's class, Miss Byron was still Headmistress and was sorry to see me leave before my time for work. I now live in Australia and read my book Walworth which I purchased at the Walworth Road Libary

Walworth Manor Place Walworth  

I went to Crampton Street School in Iliffe Street Walworth. Like you I was evacuated to Somerset not far from where you were in a village called Stoke under Ham for 6 years.
One of my grandmother's lived in Iliffe Street, and the other in Penton Place. Unfortunately I have no photos of this area. My grandfather in the 1920 had a fish and chip shop in Manor Place I don't suppose you would have a photograph of Manor Place at that time

Walworth postcards of the elephant and castle  

the street you requested info on (beresford).can you tell me whereabouts at the elephant it was,as i cant find it on a current map(online)could it have another name now.also the shop you mentioned what type of shop is that,did they retail things.my cards are from about 1900 to 1920,so unless it existed during that period i am afraid i cannot help you. the main reason postcards were published was to sell them to people who wanted to communicate such as tourists visitors etc,hence most back streets were not worthy of a card,shops even less unless the owner had them printed for publicity purposes,these are indeed scarce especially walworth ones.I was born in penton place and know the area reasonably well,but cant recall the names you mention,can you give me any clues,do you now live in this area,if so then perhaps a trip to the cumming museum and library,or the one near the borough tube station,they seem to know most things,sorry i cant help,since 1952 i haved lived in NZ yrs chas lilley

Walworth Evacuation from walworth to Somerset,  

Yes I know Stoke very well,been up Ham hill many times,you get some good views of Stoke from up there,the war memorial up the top lists a relation of my friends by the name of Shoemark,who used to live in stoke.I was born in Penton place,the house got demolished in the 1970s,and have pensioners cottages there now(so I believe).I have a good postcard of Penton Place showing the "Giraffe" pub about 1905 I think this was about half way along Penton place,no I have never seen a post card of Manor Place.It is listed in a book called Southwark(official guide)mine is a 1940s version,who say there used to be a Saxon Church there,before the Walworth manor was built,Chas.

Walworth Fish and Chips in Manor Place  

Yes it seems that most of the children who were evacuated to Martock and its environmens frequented your grandfather's fish and chip shop. I lived in Amelia street farther back down Penton Place. I used to pay about fourpence halfpence for a vast plate of rock salmon and chips. with all the salt you could take and vinegar to wash it down with. It was next to the Clarence Public house, Thence back to Crampton St. school. All the teachers I have forgotten the HeadmSTER WAS A mR pORTER OR WAS IT BEAN??
Im talking 1933 to 39 here. My favorite sight at that time was the red Crawford's Biscuit Van. I coukd look at it for hours. HAPPY MEMORIES !!

Walworth Marsland Road Walworth  

My mother Mabel and her sister Margaret and baby sister Mary were also evacuated to Stoke-under-Ham with their mother Georgina (known as Dolly). I think they may have only gone for a few months and then returned to Marsland Road just, in fact, as the blitz started - they were bombing Surrey Docks on the night they returned. Just wondered if you might has known them possibly? My contact is  Mail-me  Very likely they also went to your grandfather's Fish and Chip shop too.
Does anyone else have any wartime recollections of Marsland Road which I think did get hit with bombs.

Andrea

Walworth shoe shop at elephant  

there were hundreds of shops in the elephant and castle area.I used to work in a radio shop in the London road(1944)this was called RAPID RADIO SERVICES,i can just remember a few shops before the war as we went shopping there every week,I think the Walworth Rd or the London Rd would be your best chance,as New Kent Rd never had many shops nor did the Butts(where I was born).I have many post cards of the Walworth Rd but the shops were on both sides right down to Camberwell gate and there would have been several shoe shops,I ll go through my cards,and get back to you,Yours Chas Lilley

Walworth Number 174 Walworth Road.  

Wherabouts in the Walworth Rd was 174,was it towards the Elephant end,or nearer Camberwell Gate??.Chas.Have gone thru my collection of Walworth Rd during the last few months and although I have about 20 I am afraid I never located a shoe shop,most of the shops were too far away to establish what they were selling,sorry Chas.

Hi Janice,

I think that you have the wrong number for Tizzards.

Their shop was at 182 Walworth Road at the junction of Walworth Road with Amelia Street.

My father knew John Tizzard. He took the shop over from the Tizzard family in the early 1960's.

The whole block was demolised in the late 1970's and it is now occupied by an Estate Agents.
