My mother and her sister were born at 9 Windsor Terrace
My mother, Millie Haring (later Miller) and her sister Yetta Haring (later Freedman) were born here in 1922 and 1923. With their parents and older brother and sister, they lived in two rooms until they moved to Stoke Newington in 1929. She always said there were six rooms, six families, a shared sink on the first floor landing and a toilet in the backyard.

Harmondsworth (1939 - 1965)
I lived in a house (Lostwithiel) on the Bath Road opposite the junction with Tythe Barn Lane, now a hotel site. Initially, aircraft used one of the diagonal runways directly in line with our house. I attended Sipson Primary School opposite the Three Magpies and celebrated my 21st birthday at The Peggy Bedford in 1959.

Shortlands Close, DA17
Shortlands Close and the flats along it were constructed in the mid-1990s. Prior to this, the area was occupied by semi-detached houses with large gardens, which dated from the post-war period and were built on the site of Railway Farm. The farm and its buildings spanned the length of Abbey Road, on the south side of the North Kent Line railway tracks.

Beckenham Road on 24 April 1903, looking west from Sidney Road. Begun just before 1880, the buildings on the south (left) side were originally Adeline Terrace, a row of private houses. Eight years after the opening of Clock House Station in 1890 they were converted into shops. The cottages in the south side are slightly newer (c.1881) and remained predominantly residential. On the far left are the gates of Sydney Lodge, the only pre-suburban survivor in this part of the road. Only the gabled building on the far right remains this side of the bridge. The rest of the buildings were destroyed on 2 August 1944 when a V1 flying bomb made a direct hit on Mrs Richards’ dining rooms towards the far end of the parade on the left. It fell during the lunch hour and 44 people were killed. The road was widened after the war, completely changing the character of the area.

Clock House Parade, Beckenham (c.1910) By 1900 most of the Clock House area was built up, but a small site remained to the east of the station. This parade with flats above was added about 1906 following the success of the shops to the west. It has been threatened by redevelopment on a number of occasions but it still survives.
