Childhood 1950s 60s - a Memory of Worcester Park.
I remember Mr Morley, he lived in my road, Lynwood Drive, as did Mrs Mearing who owned the cycle shop and yes I remember Toni's for our icecreams. Greggs the grocers with the overhead "flying" capsules to the cashier and Freemans fabric shop with the cash going up in a lift contraption to upstairs. We used to roller skate on the smooth tiled front to McFisheries supermarket, previously the Odeon. I remember the high street being widened and watching the railway bridge widening. We used to play in Beverley Brook now sadly banished underground and happy days playing in the 'Hogsey' down Worcester Park Rd. We used to help at Parkers by the station and ride some of the horses there. Love this picture of the Green. Also remember the annual Horticultural show on the Green and afterwards the dahlias and chrysanths would be displayed outside Pearsons at the bottom of the high street. A good place to grow up then. It's so crowded now, Don't often go back, prefer to remember it as it was.
