Memories of Croydon

Waiting For The Bus

If my memory serves me well (now that is a song from way back) I used to wait for the 197 bus outside the Town Hall, Croydon, to take me into Addiscombe where I attended Davidson Road Secondary School. With my friend Michelle Allen, we travelled from Shirley on the bus but can not remember the number of that particular bus, it waited on Shrublands Estate for people to board.

Coffee Bars

I was born in Croydon in 1945 and lived in Victoria Place near Duppas Hill Lane. I went to the Howard School, then on to St Andrews School. My friends and I used to go to a coffee shop in South Croydon, I think it was it was in Lower Selsdon Road. I remember you had to go up a few steps to the front door. Can anyone remember the name of this coffee shop? Thanks, Cliff (Kip) Carver.

I can't remember the icecream parlour but I remember the feller on the banana stall at the bottom of the steps shouting "Narnas get your Narnas all day " also my cousin and myself used to collect old fruit boxes for firewood and take them home to Dartnell Rd on our soapboxes. Good old days Dave Symons
