The Town Hall Bells!!!

A Memory of Brixton

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.
