The Good Old Days

A Memory of Barking

I so remember Barking like this. I wasn't born until '59 but it still looked a lot like this picture. I often wonder how it changed so much. It's not at all how I remember it now. I go back to see family occasionally, but since my mum died, it's not the same. Sad but true...

I too was born in 59 and like you Kathy i much prefer how it was years ago....sadly i only go back for funerals as the place holds nothing for me anymore....very sad that it has changed so much but i do not think it is for the better.
