I Remember... - a Memory of Willesden.
I remember Canterbury market, the pie and mash shop, with crates of eels on ice outside. I remember going on my own for mash and liquor, it was 3 pence and a real treat. There was also a chip shop there and as kids we used to go and ask for the crackling and we used to get it for free. Also the rag and bone man used to be there and we would take old clothes and get a goldfish. I also remember taking the jug to the dairy for fresh milk, and going to off licence with a jug for beer for my mum.
