hi Fosney, Re your picture of R W Spicers in Guy St se1

We lived just around the corner at 107 Weston Street in 1940/50 and my mum worked in Spicers office .
I remember the boss had a Jowett Javelin car (the equivalent to an E-Type then).
Would you know the name of the factory/mill next door to our house ? I believe they made abrasives(emery cloth etc)
One day a delivery lorry reversed down their yard and ran into our back wall collapsing it onto my brother who was playing
mud pies in our old bungalow bath . I saw it all from an upstairs window and when we ran out to him he was standing up
in the middle of a huge pile of bricks and covered in muck but hardly a scratch on him . The house was already in a bad way
after the war and this event made the council finally condemn it and we were moved to Nashe House on the Lawson estate
Gt Dover St. which I believe was built on a space caused by various bombing including a V2 in Dec 1945 .
If you find out it might help to unlock my memory of this very grey time . regards rxj1943.

Lived in the flats in Guy Street. Does anybody remember Hamilton Square where we used to play football in the square even though there was a big old tree in the middle!
