Buses To Southend On Sea - a Memory of Wood Green.
I was born in Southgate and schooled at Arnos Grove Sec Modern. My earlist memories of Wood Green are of my father and his brother working together on the Trolly buses out of Wood Green Garage. My mother used to take my brothers and me to meet dad at lunch times when he had a weekend shift to work, We'd catch his Trolly bus that would take us along to Winchmore Hill where to get some extra lunch time he would do what was called throwing the poles. Then at least 2-3 times a month on Sundays we would use the local indoor swimming pool next to Barrett factory. The smell of Liquorice hung in the air. Then there was the days out via bus from Wood Green on the green buses to Southend. I can say my childhood in the 50's and early was filled great times in and around Wood Green.
