Granada Lavender Hill

A Memory of Battersea

I remember going to the Saturday morning pictures at the Granada, my family lived in Wickersley Road off Lavender Hill and I remember walking from the Granada home. I went to Wix's Lane School and later Lavender Hill School, and as a boy I worked in the London Co'op on Lavender Hill in the greengrocers and also William's greengrocers and also on Piggy West's barrow.  My first fulltime job was at Nico's Engineering in North Street, then I went on the railway, then at seventeen and a half I went in the Army and that is another story.
