Old Maps of Woolwich

Historic Maps of Woolwich and the local area.

I lived in Little Heath opp the Woodman Pub and spent most of the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies in either Charlton, Woolwich and North Woolwich. I remember Powis St and Hare St very well, Great Shopping etc. miss the variety of shops.

I remember going with my Nan and Aunts to the covered market. There used to be a fish mongers just before going in and they had live eels wriggly away on a white tiled slab, along with all kinds of other fresh fish. One of the eels jumped off the slab and landed in front of me. I was around 3 or 4 at the time and screamed. My uncle worked at the Arsenal.
