Fosney, I remember the coffe stall, it was run by Wal, some called him Wally. He used to park the stall round in Earls Cotts and in 1952 I used to help him push it to the corner of Dunton/Rolls Rd at 4.15 everynight. It was later when I got detention...
He used to give me 3d a night. I did it mon/tues/wed and then I had enough for the New Cross speedway on weds.
Thur and fri money was saved for the following weeks program. ninepence to get in and and sixpence prog.Old Wal lived over in Nile Terrace.
You mentioned the bomb site in Dunton, old bakerypolice station, we always called it The Dirt Hills. Up to the top with a piece of anderson shelter and then about six kids would get on and slide down. Good days.
At Georges, he sold all Telfers stuff, pies, savs, sausage rills and faggots. the pease pudding he did himself. Keep bringing back the memories. /Sorry about the football result .

Georges Chip Shop (hole in the wall)

A part of Bermondsey History that was well known by the local drinkers
After the Pubs turned out there was nothing better than some Peas Pudding, Savaloys and chips.
But does anyone remember when it first opened and when it closed and what happened to George?

Crol & Co. (CAFÉ) 77 Dunton Road, 2016, on the corner of Dunton Road and Lynton Road, I think there was a betting shop here before this. I can remember when there was a paper shop here (50s-60s). How this part has changed, Willow Walk opposite, entrance to Bricklayers Arms Railway Depot & Stables were on the left, with the railway houses. Mr Ted Horn one of the foreman on the railway lived in one of them.
