Hi all, I was born in QB in 1956 at 27 B and although I was only small, I have vivid memories of the old place. We moved out in 1961 when I was 5, but I remember going to Charles Dickens Sch from the age of 3.
Finding this site has brought back many memories for me and will monitor the forum from now on.

hi mark, glad your cousin found you . the photo of my uncle i found on this site is the only one i have of him now ,i thought my late mum had some of family but couldnt find any of family photos. My dads side of the family has been easy to find because most of my nans siblings and parents lived in or around queens buildings .

hope you and your family stay safe

Hi Mark, the only family I can remember was Sue and Carol McKensey. Sue was a close friend of my mother ( known as Red ) at worked together. I was born in 56 and my brother Colin was in 58. I remember a steel garage in the square that a man kept his invalid carriage in. Does any one else remember it.
All keep well in these difficult times
