Harlesden Hippodrome, Rucklidge Avenue  

I went to Furness Road School Just after it was fire bombed in 1943. I was in Miss Leonard's class for two years and used to play in the wrecked out Hippodrome at lunchtimes. Gerald Duley took us in there as he lived on Rucklidge Avenue. I can remember climbing up and looking down at the stage and the safety curtain from above. I don't remember anyone getting hurt in there. All I can say we were very lucky.  Mail-me

Harlesden Fogotten shops  

In the 1950s my brother and me as school boys would from home in Stonebridge get the 662 trolley bus to Harlesden with a suitcase to a shop on the High street or Harrow road Harlesden to get coal blocks the shop was on a corner with a side street entrance to pick up the blocks not sure if the shop was a ironmonger or coal merchants, I do remember going back getting the bus on the railway dark brick bridge by Tubbs Road.
The other shop we would go with Mother again on the 662 to jubilee clock to a outfitters shop open fronted with clothes hung up to get some clothes for school, not too sure if Mother paid weekly again forgotten the name of the shop been told it could be Strange & Chitham !!

Harlesden Did you go to Furness Road school?  

My friend Elaine (Jermey) and I attended Furness Road school from 1953 to 1959. We were trying to remember the name of the Head Teacher at that time.
We can remember dear old Miss Plomer with the head scarf and very few teeth who taught us in reception and the glamorous Miss Burle, but not the Head.
I lived in Palermo Road and Elaine lived in Bathurst Gardens.
Can anyone help us?

Hello Violet. Yup! I am 79 now and attended Keble Memorial School from 1942 to 1949, then went to school at Wesley Road, Stonebridge (Long since gone!!) The head teacher at Keble was a Mrs Smith and I remember those air raid shelters very well. Even at that tender age we would play "kiss chase" in those shelters, we never did get caught, playtime went on forever LOL !! I can remember most of the girls too!!! Evelyn Smith, Barbara Woodman, Josephine Kitchen, Sally Johnson, Pamela Fermidge to mention a few !! Young Evelyn was a beautiful girl, wonder what happened to her? I could go on forever with my memories but better go in case I bore you. TTFN.

Harlesden To Violet sherrock Australia  

Hi violet good to read your post, I used to live at 63 minet avenue not far from No80, I to used to watch the baker on my stomach & the smell was lovely, I am a few years younger than you (72) but the memories I have are very much the same, you must remember the other shops along from the bakers Lockwoods Goody,s & Mr Hallet, they have all gone now only the buildings remain, I believe Mr, Mrs Crisp was quite near No80 you may remember them, I could go on, but will stop for now, keep well Violet.

Harlesden To D Ford Hants from Australia.  

Lovely to know that somebody reads what we put on this program.I was shocked when I read my one as I am sure my spelling was not that bad and I do check before I send.
Anyway. Lovely memories. i have been over to London a few times and been to Harlesden. it has changed a lot since I lived there. I left in 1949as I got married. Cannot really remember any people living there only the O.Tooles they lived a couple of doors from us. we were a large family so think we stayed more to ourselves. I went to Keble Memorial school in Crownhill Road as the Acton Lane school was closed for people who had been bombed out had somewhere to live until they could be rehoused. No 63 was on the oppersite side of the road. No 80 was oppersite Fairlight road.

Harlesden To Violet sherrock Australia.  

Hello Violet, hope you are well, nice to here from you again I seem to remember the o.tooles some distant memory but cant be sure as I was only 6 in 1949 but I do remember the brooks family who lived at no, 62 almost opposite Fairlight avenue, I have,nt been back to Harlesden for about 15years & I was just passing through, I went to acton lane infants, & then to the juniors at minet avenue end, & then onto gibbons school 1954/58 then at 15 I left, as a point of interest my sister emigrated to perth about 4 years ago, there are a number of people who originate from Harlesden who post on this site & it is very interesting to read what they have to say who now live in Australia, well that's it for now, have a nice Christmas,

Harlesden I lived in Minet Ave in the 40-50  

I remeber the green grocers I use to quequ for a pound of apples if they got a case in during the war years. I also remember mrs nicolls who I use to help in the sweet shop while her son was in the navy. Next door was Ron Clarke known as Brongo a speedbike rider. I use to do the paper tound with my brother and then collect the money on a Saturday riding a skate on one foot as my brother had the other one. Then there was Minnie at the grocers shop forgot there name. Stan my brother and John and I use to lay on our stomachs watching the baker make break at the cake shop. we could look down the grating as it was open for them to let the heat out. i lived in no 80 Minet Aven suck memories. i now live in Australia and I am 84.
