High Road - a Memory of Leytonstone.
I have fond memories of the High Street. Platts sweet shop, with the 1 penny, 2 penny and 3 penny trays of sweets. The motor bike shop, Rivetts, the florist Poachins, the jewellers Stillwells, the bakers on the corner at the Thatched House, The Halfway House pub (where I met my husband) and the small Sainsbury's. I went to Cann Hall School from1963-1969. The local church Cann Hall Baptist where I attended Sunday School and Girls Brigade. Tom Hood School from 1972-1975. Neighbours were very friendly and would help each other out when necessary. Not many cars around then so fond memories of playing in the street, roller skating and riding my bike. Saturday morning pictures at the Cinema in Church Lane (free if it was your birthday). Bearmans department store was massive (well to a little child anyway). Seeing Father Christmas there was special too. The No 10 and 262 bus's were our locals. Those were the days, if only life was so simple now.
