Memories of Croydon, Davis Theatre, High Street c1955

My Mum

My mum worked as a telephonist at the Davis Theatre, probably in the 1960s, and I used to go and meet her there. I remember watching 'Giselle' performed by Galina Ulonova and Nikelei Fediachev (sp?) of the Bolshoi Ballet. I think it was on stage but it could have been a movie. I also met Eileen Joyce the pianist and Mum came home one day with a signed copy of her book which I still have.

Memories of Croydon


I was born in Croydon in 1954 and lived in Addiscombe all my life. I went to Woodside School and also Ashburton Secondary Modern in Shirley Road. Both Addiscombe and Croydon have changed so much. I remember Kennards, C&A and Debenhams and when buses ran through Croydon town centre.

Orchid Ballroom

Oh yes, wonderful evenings spent waiting for the invitation to dance. I have photos of the exciting evening when the TV cameras came and televised us jiving. I even remember the site when it was a skating rink.

A memory of Croydon by Maureen Bunn


I remember my first job in Croydon, it was at Grants. Back in 1966. Just finished school and thought I was so grown up. I liked working there, did not stay long went on to London. Croydon sure has changed these past 40+ years. But it will always be the same in my memories. Not been there since 1970. Maybe some day I'll make it back for a visit.
