Hello Ray, just posted off the photos of your Nan to my aunt. I have looked at the photo. The only one who could be my Nanny Lou is the smallest face right in the center of the middle row. I wonder? Maybe my aunt will look with a magnifying glass. Yes Tony Cooper did work for Alan Firman in Kent.
My aunt Ivy was married to someone from Leroy Street, the Acotts. He was called Ken Acott and was close to Timmy Fox. Uncle Ken worked at the Borough Market for years.
I love NZ now. I know I hated it when I first came. It has been so good to me. I couldn't cope with those bitter winters we got as kids. Yes I remember the smogs, the smell, the colour and my parents making me wear a scarf over my mouth. It was almost greeny yellow in colour. Learnt to swim at Grange Road Baths, remember they used to cover the pool and it was used for wrestling. My dad worked for Bermondsey Borough council in Spa Road on the dust.
My aunt will be thrilled with the photos. Thanks Ray. Is your wife from Bermondsey?
