Cranbrook Fisheries - a Memory of Barkingside.
My dad used to run the fish shop in Cranbrook Road (Cranbrook Fisheries), it was opposite Gaysham Avenue, with Warwick Doubles on the corner. I went to school at Gearies Junior School and grew up in and around Barkingside and Gants Hill. I went there a few weeks ago, it's now a Chinese take-away and the only shop that's still there is Frank Barnes car sales on the corner of Icknield Drive. Has anyone got any photos of the shops around where my dad's shop was?
