Memory Lane /Am I Getting Old? - a Memory of Crouch End.
So nice to read all the great reminders of my childhood.I too went to Rokesley Infants,Crouch End Juniors and Crouch End Secondary School.1945/1955.One establishment that seems to have been forgotten is the 'Bread an' Drip Shop' next to CESC in park road.I can still taste the 'doorsteps' of new bread thick with beef dripplng,probably not healthy,but delicious.Souch's that sold us little balsa wood aeroplanes for a couple of pence each.Some names that stay with me are : Johnny Stretten (Park Road) Tony Roth ,Ashley Pripstein,Alan Radar,Geoff Selway,Brian Deards,Mickey Weston,Eric Fortune,Roy Skelton(to whom i owe so much) Colin Bint,Billy Earl,Ray Philipps,Alan Parris(Nelson Road) Lennie Coxall,Charlie Garratt and Ronnie Poulter.I wonder where they are now,I hope life has been kind to them.
