A Memory of Twickenham.

My mother owned a dress shop in twickenham...and as I grew up I remember the swimming pool...which we broke into at night...about 1970...remember Pete Townsend wanting to rent our garage....and The Crown ballet school which was owned by the mother of Bonny Langford....as for Eel Pie island...unfortunately I was too young....but remember Barmey arms so well. The owners had a very attractive son who suffered with polio....I always fancied him...I wonder where he is now...happy I hope as he never appeared happy then. Happy and sad memories...

Comments & Feedback

I remember the swimming pool around 1960 always seemed full if the sun was out. Also the old Twickenham station on the other side of the road to the present one. Thats it really. Thanks for sharing that memory especially about Pete Townshend. Looking back the early seventies seemed not too bad
My name is Jayne Forge....only says Paul as I use the same email address!
