Brockwell Park

A Memory of Brixton

I remember Brockwell Park, I used to go there with a friend open-air dancing. My friend was
Phillis but alas can't remember her last name. We met and worked at Freeman's catalogue firm in the SKL department. Also we went roller skating in Brixton. My maiden name was Beryl Jamieson, if any of the girls read this that worked at Freeman's around 50's 60's please get in touch will be pleased to hear from any of you.
