Old Maps of Dagenham

Historic Maps of Dagenham and the local area.

In the 1960's I worked for Telephone Cables Limited or TCL as it was known, laying underground cables all over the UK. As one of the drivers I regularly had to go to the works to pick gear up. If my memory serves me right this view is taken looking back up Chequers Lane towards the Ford Works and that is TCL on the left with Dagenite batteries just beyond anf then an ungated railway crossing.

Hi all. My name is Howard Matthams, son of Brian Matthams who lived at 165 Hardie Road Dagenham. He lived there with his sister Brenda May Matthams. Father was Ken Matthams. My dad was born in the late 30's. Brenda lived in the same house till about 2000 when she sadly died. I'm very keen to hear from people who knew my family.
