I was born in 1957 in my nan and granddad's house (May & Fred Gloster). I went to Buckingham Road nursery school, then Edgware infants & juniors. I remember the head had a black and white dog and I would give it one of my ginger biscuits. We lived at 96 Vancouver Road, I used to watch benches being made over the garden fence in the wood yard. My dad, Joe, worked in the pie shop, just over the railway bridge near Burnt Oak station, then Edgware Hospital stores department. I used to go to 'work' with the green grocer on his horse and cart, the stable was in Bacon Lane. Saturday morning pictures at the ABC cost 6d, my best friend was Shirley Bogis. I remember the live eels; my brother Paul and I ran up all the stairs in the Co-op, and onto the roof. I still have a chest of drawers bought in the Co-op in 1958. Also the butchers in Edgware Prices, they had twin girls, Annabel and Pauline.
