Memories of Leytonstone

I also remember the father Christmas grotto and the ride there. I was mystified for years as to how we seemed to travel through the store to reach it. The ride changed every year. Years later my mum explained how it was done, but at the time it was part of the magic of my 60s childhood.

My Dad, Mark Schofield went to Goodall Rd School from about 1947 - 51. He remembers having a school photo taken during this time and we would love to find a copy. If anyone can help, please let me know thanks, Jane

Leytonstone was such a lovely high road, lovely cafes, cinemas , bowling alley, but what is driving me a bit nuts is trying to find out the name of 2 shops that where there, tha first one was what is the left side of Boots the chemist now. It was a high end fashion shop and it was where I had my first Saturday job. (...Read full memory)

Hi everyone, Bit of a Newby so here goes, we had a newsagents outside the greenman called the bookstall My mum and dad ran it for years it was the meeting spot for most of the community. Dad started there in the 70s and finished up in the 90s. We were opposite Leytonstone house and the welsh church plenty of good memories and good friends made. Diane
