I was born in 1937 at 73 Boston Gardens, Brentford, Middesex, near Boston Manor Station on the Picadilly Line. I left the area in 1954 to work on the south coast prior to emigrating to New Zealand in 1961. I remember the public baths (and the library!) where I learnt to swim at a young age and, of course, the domination of the Gas Works! I would dearly like to locate an old friend who lived next door to me, a Frances Atkins, at 71 Boston Gardens. There was a lovely park just at the bottom of our road where we climbed trees and caught tadpoles in the pond! I re-visited over 20 years ago and not a lot had changed!
