My mother Rose Rye was born at 24 Harnage Rd Brentford in 1908. She married my father Arthur Collins, from Strand on the Green, in the 1930s. They lived there all their married life until the houses were needed for development in the 1960s. My brother and I were born in the same house, Alan in 1944 and myself Ann in 1947. I have great memories from my childhood, mostly from school days and can remember the Maypole dancing each year.
My Mum was taught at St Georges School by Mr Allen and when I went to the same school he was the headmaster.
My mother worked for many years at the cinema, Queens Hall at the Halfacre and my father was a painter and decorator. My Mum sadly died at aged 59 after a long fight with cancer. I would be pleased to hear other peoples memories of around this time.
