Victoria Road - a Memory of Barkingside.

I grew up in Victoria Road in the 1950s and 1960s. I remember the fish shop that has been written about. There was an off licence on one corner of Victoria Road and Cranbrook Road and Williamsons stores on the other side of the road. My mum used to clean for Mrs Williamson. By Doubles, across Cranbrook Road, there was a Political Committee shop/office, Ciltom Furnishers (who later moved over to Williamsons stores) and Folgreens hardware shop. There was a sweet shop by the fish shop, and a launderette and hairdressers close by too.
