That picture of Alice Street in the 1930s has a lady on the pavement on the extreme right. My mum tells me that's my Nan, that is! Susan Bullion was her name and she lived in Bermondsey most of her life. She died in one of the flats on the Arnold Estate, off Druid Street, in 1968. The family had lived in Victoria Place and Star Place.

Hi Joe once again great Pic, love the old picture, but very depressing to see the moden one. In the fifties there used to by a small shop Run by a Micky Sullivan as 14yr olds we used to buy a fag there a woodbine for 1 old penny. On the opposite corner there was a pub cant think of the name of it used to use it as a older teenager.

Hi paperboy

I went to Aylwin school with a girl named Cindy Bullion in the early 1970's.
Cindy would be 52/53 now. Is she any relation to you?

You can take the girl out of Bermondsey but you can't take Bermondsey out of the girl!

Alice Street (viewed from Hartley Jam Factory)

This view is taken from the factory of one of Bermondsey's most prominent employers, Hartley's Jams in Rothsay Street.
The photograph looks north over typical flat-fronted valley-roofed houses of the 1850s.
Prominent in the middle distance is the Central Hall of the Methodist South London Mission, which opened in 1900.
Behind and to the left are the premises of Barrow, Hepburn & Gale on Long Lane, and further in the background is Tower Bridge.
The streets in the foreground were demolished by the Bermondsey Borough Council shortly after the photograph was taken, and the Meakin
Estate was built in their place.
