Catching The Bus From Here To Holders Green - a Memory of Swiss Cottage.
I remember very well the journey from our house in Eastcote to Granmas in Holders Green! We would get the Met from Eastcote Station to Fincley Road then catch the bus to Golders Green High Road. My brother and me would race all the way from the start of Leaside Cresent to number 63 my wonderful Grandparents.
Ena and Charles Baker who had lived in the house since they were married in the 1920s? My Mum was Jean Lilian and my Aunt was Gillian Baker.
The house still has the same ceramic numbers on the outside that my Aunt made in her pottery shop in Greenwich.
I could go on forever but this just the start.
