Corner Tuck Shop

A Memory of Acton

I remember as a small child living in a flat at Spencer Road, Acton. My cousin  lived with his parents in the flat above. We always enjoyed our trip to the corner tuck shop where we could buy brill ice cream and drinks. I remember Acton as a clean, lovely place to live with its tall well-kept buildings and people were very friendly, we moved in the late 1950s but we often went back for a visit until my cousin moved too.
