Hi I am new to the forum and wondering whether any members lived in Mowbray or Stanhope Buildings in Redcross Way between 1957-1967? If so would appreciate hearing from you.

Advanced thanks.

Hi Tony

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?

Kind regards

Dear Teresa

I have a couple o photos that include my family but at present they are in storage

I must confess your name seems familiar , i do not recall any of the girls

The girls i recall were

Jackie Armstrong who lived on the front of Red Cross way and had a pet rabbit , her father had a camper van he parked around the back , so in Mowbray terms they must have been affluent

Her friend Karen Wilcox , Lorraine and Debbie Ponting ,Polly Oliver Teresa Macateer Nicky Charalombus ,Alfords , slightly late when they moved there

Jimmy Berry was a childhood friend , he was a bit younger than me , he had an older sister Linda , the father died young Ronnie a very nice man and that shattered the family

The McCarthy family were Derrick and Rosalie , my first love
There was the Daily family , very nice - Paddy and Michael i thing 3 daughters one Irene and one slightly older than me Mary

Turkish boy Hussain Ramadam

I was very happy in the Borough - i cannot understand why so many murderers hailed from there

The people were very neighbourly , no one had anything but most were content , its nice to have a trip down memory lane

Regards

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

Hello Cheryl
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
