I was born in the flats at Stewarts Lane by the dogs' home in 1950. My mum was born in Tidemore Street and my grandad in Curry Street, Nine Elms in 1897. My dad was born in Livingstone Road, the other end of Battersea, and also lived in Maysoule Road. My mum and dad met whilst queing outside the Granada in 1945. Although I wasn't a 'Grenadier' at this one, I went every Saturday morning to the Granada at Wandsworth Rroad. As a teenager the junction Granada was my local, my friend who lived in Usk Road and I probably saw every film they showed between 1965 and 1970. Does anyone remember the miserable old chap who was the usher who used to shine his torch straight into people's faces? He threw us out one time because some boys behind were throwing bits of paper at us and we all got our marching orders, oh what memories.
