My name is Thomas and I only moved to the Elephant three months ago.
I am curious to hear from people who have lived in the area for a long time to hear how it was back then when all the then new stuff was built:
, Alexander Fleming House (now MCH), Perronet House
, Draper Estate, The Heygate Estate and of course the Shopping Centre with its subways and the Michael Faraday Memorial.
All of the above developments must have been rather impressive (Landmarks) back then? How did people feel about or regard them? What was life like at the Elephant in general and by when did things start to become somewhat rundown?
I am not sure if you are actually too young, but though it's well worth a try.
Any stories from anyone would be highly appreciated.
