RILEY ROAD.

Riley Road by Purbrook Street in the 1950s had a bend in the road, which has since been straightened out. I think this is where the c1950s picture was taken :?: with the old Tin Plate Works on the right. The 2019 picture is what it looks like now, with Tower Bridge to the left of the white building in the distance.

Tower Bridge/Riley Road secondary school. I went there, rephrase that I passed through there in the early 1950s, before they decided that they no longer wanted me back ;), no love lost there never did like it, best thing that could have happened to me. :)
