My Childhood In West Norwood

A Memory of West Norwood.

So many wonderful memories of my life in West norwood. I went to st Luke's infant school. We had to go to the church hall for our lunch, no happy memories about the food. I hated it! We first lived in Hannah road above the cafe. can't remember the name. My mum worked in the cafe. We then moved to Caswick road. My parents bought a house in thornlaw road.
I went to kingsdale my brother went to tulse hill boys. My dad worked at days removal firm. My favourite place to go to was the library. So excited when I found a post card of it on ebay. When my cousin came to live with us as had so much fun! Saturday night at the local pub. They had a large room called harmony hall and Saturday night was talent night. So good to remember. My cousin married a local boy and moved to preston. I left in 1970 to live in canada. While there my mum and brother moved to anerly. Since then I have been back once to stand outside our old house remembering all the mostly amazing things that happened there. I now live in Sussex but for me West norwood will always be home even after all these years away.
