Woolwich, Powis Street - a Memory of Woolwich.
I remember Woolwich town centre in the 1960's when I was a kid. In this picture I believe you can just see Garrets department store on the left which was a big rival to Cuffs department store a bit further back (out of shot). It was Cuffs store that provided my school uniform for Eglinton school. I also remember going to the restaurant upstairs in the RACS, not often as it was a silver service restaurant, a bit posh for us, as we lived in a prefab in Cleanthus Road, Shooters Hill. Is there any one who has similar memories, in particular anyone living in the prefabs Cleanthus Road between 1962 and 1967.
