Can anybody please help. I am carrying out a bit of family history tracing and have seen on the Electoral Register 1945 for 67 Tower Bridge Road that there were numerous males registered at this address. Does anybody know what the building was or used as. Many thanks

Happy New Year, GD1, and welcome to the Forum.

You may well find that people have been somewhat preoccupied for the last 24 hours. Try again tomorrow, when reality has kicked back in :p

I sent GD1 a PM with a link,I think the 2nd post might be thanking me and not sarcasm as it may read.

Some good pointers thankyou to you all will now take a look at them to see what I can find. That wasn't sarcasm Boroughonian but a genuine thankyou.

Just to give you an update. I have now discovered that Nos 67 -69 Tower Bridge Road, from the 1911 Census, was a Common Lodging House. However, still looking to establish whether it remained as such during 1945 or if it had changed in status to possibly cater for returning military personnel or declined to a lower status. Will keep you posted

Many thanks boroughonian. It always amazes me to see these old films. So many people wore hats and caps. I'm trying to help my brother research his late wife's family tree, hence my interest. I moved away from Camberwell in the early 60's and don't have too many memories of Bermondsey, unfortunately. My dad was born in Smyrk's road off Old Kent Road in 1919. My mum lived in Neate Street by what was Wells Way Library (probably gone now) and Loncroft Road which is probably more Camberwell. Her dad worked early 1900's at the mineral water co which later became R Whites. An uncle of mine had a clothing stall in East Lane where I used to earn a few coppers of a weekend in the late 50's. Lots of fascinating bits on this website some very nostalgic. Not just Bermondsey but some comments generally around the Walworth Road. Enjoyable
