North Kensington/Notting Hill In The 1950s And 1960s - a Memory of Ashford.
I was born in 1950 and lived the first twenty years of my life in Acklam Road, off the Portobello Road, North Kensington. Although a deprived area, we were always happy and never ill. Does anyone else have fond (or otherwise) memories of North Kensington during this period? The last time I revisted Portobello Road was with my late mum, in the 1980s. I adapted to life outside London, now Greater London, but mum, a real Londoner, and born in the area, always regretted moving away, and never was truly happy again.
