Longley Road 1960s

A Memory of Tooting Graveney

I lived in Longley Road 1956 to 74. I remember playing football in Charlemont Road with my friends Richard and Johnjoe every evening till it got dark, no cars, no people, great times.
I also remember seeing the Beatles in Trevelyan Road before they went to the Tooting Granada to perform (who would believe that happened?). We had a lot of freedom in those days.
I stiil visit Tooting for work now and again, it has sadly changed a lot.
