Re: Ilderton Road

Hi Kiwi,

This is the same Ebonestas that was at the end of Rollins Street?
My Nan and Grandad both worked there for many years... Anne and Walter Couzins.
The late May Lloyd had photos of a young Nan and Grandad dressed in their finest, about to board a coach, bound for an Ebonestas beano! :D

Re: HORNSHAY STREET

Hi Kiwi, Unfortunately, I wasn’t around during the hay days of New Cross Stadium, but I do remember being taken to see the stock car / banger racing by my dad, grandad and uncle. I was about 4 so it would have been around 1968? My strongest memories are of the noise and the smell! I was petrified on...

Re: Ilderton Road

Hi Kiwi, I’ve been pondering over the above picture for ages.... and I don’t think it’s Record Street?. But that view does look familiar? I thought at first that the building in the background was Ilderton Road school but, having looked at quite a few pictures, I don’t think it is. I know the school...

Re: OLD KENT ROAD.

"kiwi"]No problem Brian & thanks for that. Yes, I did slightly get it wrong but don’t tell the wife she keeps telling me I’m not PERFECT. ;) I think this could be by Albany Road with Humphrey Street to the left but not sure? OLD KENT ROAD 1900s.jpg Hi Ray, Looks like you're right! IMG...

Re: OLD KENT ROAD.

Junction of Pomroy Street and Old Kent Road in 1953. Very like where Fosney’s tram is in an earlier post, bus/tram heading towards New Cross. Good to see I’m not the only one that doe’s it, as strictly speaking this is New Cross Road, Old Kent Road ends the other side of the Bridge. "Not a lot...

Re: Old Kent Road & Hatcham Railway Station

Hi Steve, Yes, I remember those entrances now... if I remember correctly, there was one either side of the viaduct, the one in the picture above must have been on the OKR side; the one on the New Cross side of the viaduct could be seen from the TV shop I worked at. During the 80's/90's those arches ...

Old Kent Road & Hatcham Railway Station

Hi All, Was wondering if anyone has, or knows where to find, any photos of the above station? I know it was closed during the first World War, but never reopened! I did read a little while ago, about the possibility of a new OKR station, as part of the regeneration of the area... quite ironic that a...

Re: Ilderton Road

Hi Ray, Once the viaduct was built, cutting across W.P.L, I'm fairly certain that it's connection to Ilderton Rd/ Canterbury Road, was severed for good! Access to Ilderton Road would be via Wagner Street, as it is now. I worked at Wallis TV & Radio Ltd for over 20 years; our rear entrance was at...

Re: Ilderton Road

Hi Ray, That was an interesting read about the iron works in Pomeroy Street (do you know which end it was?) I remember my Granddad mentioning about a factory that made steam engines in New Cross, I just assumed he meant static engines! In your most recent pictures, the view from Ambleside Point is v...

Re: Ilderton Road

Hi woodpoleman, Yes, I think that is the same map I saw years ago! Many thanks for posting it. I would love a PDF of that if that's ok? I'll PM you my email address. It definitely looks like White Post Lane was discected by the railway viaduct when it was built. On the map, White Post Lane is pretty...
