Re: Borough High Street

This is my Great Aunt Rose Basham outside Effords Bakery 269 Borough High Street. The photo would have been taken in about 1920. The bakery also had a branch in Great Dover Street.

Re: The Grange

This photo was taken outside The Red Cow in the 1950s. My Nan Elsie Voss is on the left. I think the two in the car are actors and may have been filming locally. Any ideas who everyone is?

Re: Pages Walk

My great Aunt Rose Stapleton was killed with her two young sons Edward and Frederick when a bomb hit their house on the corner of Pages Walk and Grange Road on 15th November 1940. This building must be named after her.

My Dad who is now 88 and lived in Keyes Road ( formerly Alfred Street) told me recently that he remembers the pillar box on the corner of Spa Road opposite the Town Hall being blown up by the IRA in their bombing campaign in London just about when the War started in 1939/1940.
