59 Durham Buildings Moved Out 1957

A Memory of Battersea

I was born in 59 Durham Buildings - love the memories. My dad used to drink in the Nags Head pub across the road and work in Gartens factory - the smell was around all week bar Sundays. Me and my two sisters, Maureen and Ann, 4 and 2 years older than me, we went to Sacred Heart School in Trott Street. I was 4 or 5 when we moved to Dorset Road off Clapham Road.
