Fullerton Road - a Memory of Addiscombe.

I was born and lived for 12 years of my life in Fullerton Road, I lived with my parents sister and brother in my nan's house number 19. My uncle and aunt lived at the bottom of the cul-de-sac, I had an aunt in Stretton Road opposite St Martin's Church, which I believe has been demolished!! We, as children had great fun in the cul-de-sac, everyone new everyone, we had street parties and fancy dress competitions. I can't remember the name of the shops at the top of the road but we had an off licence on the corner, sweet shop, bakers, and a social club my mum and dad used to go to. My mum was a great ballroom dancer, I think the club was called The Fana Club, does anyone remember that? I attended Davidson Road Infants, I remember passing allotments and a very nasty smell of the Laundry on my way to school. On the road along side the laundry, I had a friend Linda, my mum became her god mother but I have long since lost touch with the the Tyrie family. Linda's dad was Bill. I then moved to Shirley.
