Pickerings Antique Shop - a Memory of Knowle.

I have lived in Knowle for most of my life,I went to Knowle School before Arden School was built. The Rev. Sharpe was the vicar and took us for history lessons about the church. I also learnt to play the piano with Miss Muriel Mawbey in her studio situated in an old bungalow type building at the back of Chester House Antiques. There was an old petrol pump at the back of Chester House and a yard where the GPO vans would park. The scout and guide hut was just along the road behind Salmons shoe shop. There was an old air raid shelter in the corner of Pickerings Field. Lots of memories too many for here.
