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

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
