Jobsons Newsagent 269 Cranbrook Road Ilford

My father and grandfather, Henry Reeve and Frank Jobson, owned the newsagent facing the main Valentine's Park Gates. I was born 1968, in the bedroom above, and arrived with the newspapers. I spent such a great childhood residing in lford and sadly had to leave 1979 when the lease could not be renewed, as the buildings were being demolished. But very happy memories I still hold close to my heart.

As a treat on a Saturday and if my dad was lucky on the 'horses' my dad used to take us for a milkshake in the Rainbow Cafe near the Pioneer Mkt. Happy memories

We too were to be bombed out of our house, at the bottom of ...Read full memory

Request For Info

This is not a memory - more of a request for info/stories please. I used to live in Barkingside in the 1990's when I was a child. I have since moved away but I am still very interested in the history of the area, especially anything about the second world war. As someone who is deeply interested in history, I am wondering if ...Read full memory
