Silver Lounge

A Memory of Bexleyheath

I also loved going to the Silver Lounge for a lovely Knicker Bocker Glory a real treat. Then we would go and look round Hides which seemed very posh. Does anyone remember the Library, a wooden building that seemed to hold many books, and the pet shop on the next corner to it where you could gaze thru the window at all the animals.

My, My. I paid one penny and read to the white haired lady librarian to get my first ticket at that library in 1939. Know the Silver Lounge. used to live on Pickford Lane, and St Audrey Avenue. Went to the School behind St James' Church. I visit back every couple of years. Next visit in the Fall of 2015. It's almost alien now. I'm 82. Left in 1960. George Rolfe

I remember going to the Library with my mother and sitting at the small table in the children's area and reading books about Mumfie the elephant ant Orlando the marmalade cat.
