Toy Shop Queens Rd Buckhurst Hill

A Memory of Buckhurst Hill

I can remember the toy shop in the early 50's. It used to be a magnet to my sister & I. When out shopping with our mother, if there was a spare penny to be had, into the slot it went & we would stand there in awe watching the train go round & around. I remember getting a pair of those pink sparkle 'high heel' shoes from there & clip clopped my way home to Hornbeam Rd. : )
