Wood Green In The Sixties - a Memory of Wood Green.

I was born in Newnham Road N 22 in 1940. I want to wood green junior school at the bottom of our road and then on to Tottenham Sec Mod (near the great Cambridge road). When I left school I was a locomotive fireman at Kentish town loco and then when I was old enough onto the Middlesex Fire Brigade with my first posting to station 9 mortis green. I spent much of my youth with my cousin Ray (the happiest days of my life ) We used to spend any nights that we could roller skating at the ally rally and then onto the ace cafe on the north circular road. I think Ray (who went into the merchant navy) jumped ship in Australia, I would love to hear from him again. If any one would like to contact me my email is e.saunders07@btinternet.com.
