I remember my nan taking me to meet Mrs Hughes the headmistress of John Burns Primary on Wycliffe Road, Battersea, the school is now flats. I also remember being in a school play with the famous actor Tim Spall.
We lived at 115 Beaufoy Road until 1969 when we moved onto the York Road estate, a block of flats called Chesterton House on Ingrave Street. I also remember a film being made with the late Oliver Reed, and Edward Woodward called 'The Sitting Target', but I missed John Wayne filming on the estate for the film 'Brannigan', but I did get to meet Sean Connery when he made a film called 'The Offence'. I used to play in a playground between scholey and Holcroft House and a small one behind Shepherd hse and the one next to sporle court the shops i remember on falcon rd were gross the opticans, Dunklemans, Iles carpets, Newmans furniture, Sunrays opticans, dentists, Dr Blonstein, my wife says a shop where you could buy trusses, we think there was a electrical shop called Sid Bosches, on the corner was an off licence, and the Prince's Head pub.
