Welling Corner 1955, Welling
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

I also remember Wrotham Road Centre and used to go dancing there, also the Embassy at Welling, my heart throb attended Townley Road for Girls (Sally Tollhurst), all this was around 1959 to 1962. Does anyone remember the Inferno hut in the early rock & roll days, near Welling railway station? My grandfather owned the (Heads) Fruit & Veg shop on the same side as Barclays Bank. Was the Court School for Dancing next to the Granada, upstairs? Gee Wiz the good old days, don't know about you but I miss them.

RE: How I Remember The Good Times

I was born just off Welling High street and I remember the Head family and their shop very well. In the 1950s their son Peter was in my class at Hook Lane primary school. We bought all our veg there, this was before the supermarket opened across the road next to the Embassy dance hall. I remember buying something in their shop when I had a handkercheif over my mouth - these were the days of the smog when you could only see a few yards in front of you.
