Hi All,

Does anyone have some images or memories of the adventure playground and mini-lido that used to be located between the Imperial War Museum's gardens and Brook Street?

By the late 70s I was too old to go there, but my brother did, and I used to often take and pick him up from there.

I think I went there once, we wasn't impressed as there was no deep end, we was about 10 or 11. It served a purpose though, we used to tell our Mums we were going there but go to the Southwark Park lido instead.

Hey Gilbert. We used to live at 270 on the top floor of the very last building overlooking Fraizer Street. As you walk up the stairs, our house was on the right. I do somewhat recall a coloured family living across our flat. We left in Dec 1972. [email protected]

spent many long summers in Bedlam park Lido whilst at primary school getting changed under a towel cos of the holes in the woodern walls!! and the adventure playground on the big rope swing as well as the general childrens park area. Also many games of hide and seek and tag in the war museum much to the annoyance of the staff!

Hi Wendy Wallace,

my name is Tony Lynch and I lived in 65 Campbell Buildings prior to you. My parents were Irish and my dad worked on the railway, initially at waterloo Station then subsequent other stations after.
You have summed up most of my memories of Campbell Buildings, so I will not repeat them again,
small world!

My Father was the Schoolkeeper at Johanna Street School up until 1969 and I wonder if anyone might have a photo of the school as my Brother cannot find one anywhere and he is desperate to find one to show me where I was born in 1966. My Father was called Reg Lyne. Many thanks Sarah

I too remember Mark Gilmore. He and his brother Tony Gilmore used to live above me at Campbell Buildings, until the flats were demolished them. They then moved to Oval. I saw Tony on Kilroy show once.
