I too attended St Saviours and later La Salette. I know the Berry family, one of which I have been in contact with in the last few years and knew the Woodhalls and McCarthys. I may know you by appearance, but sadly I cant put a face to the name...may be likewise lol.
Do you remember Ann Malane (think this is the correct spelling) who lived in Mowbray, or may be Mary Cunningham who lived in Stanhope Buildings.? Mary had brothers, one was called John. I am trying to locate her whereabouts.
Would you happen to have any photos of Mowbray that you would consider sharing by email?
Just picked up this thread would anyone like to start again.
I lived at 119 and 120 Stanhope from 53 till 69 fond memories of the borough just love to hear about the past there, it was a long time ago names and places do come to mind just need a prompt.Does anyone remember old Joe's shop he ran it with his wife Mary (Old Italian Couple) in Flatiron Square opposite the Rose & Crown sold coal,spuds,sweets,ciggies one at at time hot blackcurrent at a penny a glass over a marble counter.

Hi I would love to hear more about Stanhope Buildings . I did live there but my family moved to Abbey Wood in 1963. My family name is Toomey. My dad was called Ronnie sadly he passed in 97. he had a brother Ginger and sisters Linda and Figgie. Sadly Ginger and Figgie have passed too.
My dad could tell some stories about the old buildings. My mum often says ‘those were good days’. And still missed the Buildings.
I hope someone can post some more stories
I remember Linda and Figgie they lived in my block 1st floor left hand side as you entered the the Rec directly above the Tonkies, they had a son Sergio father was Polish and mother Italian just dropped the name in to prompt a memory somewhere.Figgies family were one of the 1st to move she would have been aged about 13 years I guess Linda was the elder I think, I'm sad to hear of Figgies passing. I remember a great deal about the Borough and people who lived there including many of the names mentioned by all on the chat.That's all for now but will come back again.
Best reg Kevin
