My name is Margaret Saunders. I was born at 3 Theobald Street, but at sometime we moved to 18a Theobald Street. I went to Furzehill Infant and Junior schools, then on to Lyndhurst. We lived over the shop that was the stationers, owned by Mr & Mrs Feeley; next door to that was Tompkins the butchers and then Freestones, the bakers. On the other side of the stationers, was a grocers and the hairdressers. At the back of the shops were small gardens and garages, the bakery and the butchers cold store. Just across the road was the garage, the lane between them, and a white building which was the storage area for the stationers, and where my dad parked his car which lead to the butcher's poultry yard. After the bakers there were cottages set back from the road and I am sure Mr Tompkins lived in one of them with his parents! Going on up that side of the road were open fields where the fair used to be. My friends at this time were; Penny Freestone, Geraldine Feeley and Sally Thomas. On leaving Lyndhurst my first job was a junior typist at MGM studios in their Personnel department. I moved from Borehamwood to Elstree for a few months after my parents passed away, then on to London (Golders Green area).I am now living in West Sussex.
