Shopping In Safeways - a Memory of Lewisham.

We lived in Knowles Hill Cres as young parents with a baby girl and we used to go shopping in Safeways on a Friday . We went to the toy shop on my daughters 4th birthday to buy her a doll but came home with a trainset. We had her photo taken with santa in Chiesmans but we left Lewisham in 1969.
