Granada, Clapham Junction

A Memory of Battersea

I have fond memories of the "British Granadiers" on Saturday mornings at the Granada, great fun. I also remember later on a Sunday, as a teenager, going to the Granada with my mates. We jostled for what we thought to be the best seat in the house. This seat was in the front row of the balcony, and had a plaque noting that the Duchess of Kent had sat there during the opening in 1937. All pretty harmless by today's standards.
In 1948 I attended Wix's Lane school and lived in Marmion Road. Later I went to Emanuel School and lived in Vardens Road.
I'm now a retired engineer living in Houston, Texas.
