Lived Just Round The Corner From Here - a Memory of Balham.
Lived in Badminton Road as a child and teenager. There was a garage just out of view on the right. Used to walk up here to the tube and buses at Clapham South, there was a bus down Nightingale Lane, the 189, which was quite infrequent (in London terms). I also went to St. Marys Balham from 1962 to 1968, and remember Mr Scott, also the deputy head Miss Ellis. Also the Wych(spelling?) Elm tree in the playground. I havnt been back to Balham since the late 80's and have lived in Yorkshire for the last 34 years
