Memories of Brixton, Town Hall c1960

Trent Road Water Lane

I was bought up in Brixton, Water Lane - have very happy memories. I remember going to Brixton market with my nan, she would meet her sister for a drink in the pub, Prince Albert. I would wait outside with my crisps and lemonade, then she would take me into Walworth and buy me sweets. I used to love going to Saturday morning pictures with my best friend who lived next door in Trent Road. I went to Parkside School I think it was Furndale Road. My friend and I would go to Brockwell Park and play on the swings then go to the big house in the park and buy sweet such really happy days. I remember going to the pictures with my gran, she would pay for the cheap seats and insisted on moving to the better seats when the lights went down heheh we never had much money.


I lived in Dalyell Road when I was about five in 1954. I remember "Aunti and Uncle Mills" not reallly my realtives but we called them that as they were friends of my parents Alf and Ruby Timpson. The Mill's lived in in what I think was Cromfield St just off from our road leading on to Stockwell Road. Sally Mills was my brother's friend. Their eldest son was Frank Mills who became a character actor and can still be seen taking many parts on the TV e.g. Foyles War etc. I went to Stockwell Primary School, leaving there in 1960/1. I remember the Odeon cinema in Stockwell Road and queuing up down the side of it. Taking a broken doll to the Dolls Hospital, a shop off Electric Avenue I think, just past the market under the ...Read full memory

Our Record Shop In Landor Road

Does anyone remember the Record Shop in Landor Road called The Beat Goes On. My husband and I opened this shop around 1976 and we were there for a couple of years. It was opposite the well known bakery in that road. Down the road was a grren grocers, and up the road was a camping shop. The man from the greengrocers was called David. The man from the camping shop used to come to our shop quite a lot. We closed when Our Price opened up in the town but we enjoyed our time selling reggae and disco music at a good price. Would love to hear if anyone remembers the shop.

The Town Hall Bells!!!

My grandparents lived opposite the town hall and whenever my younger brother and myself stayed with them the town hall bells used to keep us awake. The clock used to chime every quarter and of course the full chimes on the hour. Oh what memories of Daisy Dormer Court where they lived. I went to infant school in Santley St off the Acre Lane, and lived in Tintern St. Oh such happy memories of times gone by.

It was one of the most wonderful times of my life - there were about ten young(ish) blokes living in the house that was owned by ...Read full memory
