Broseley Grove/Elvino Road/ Knighton Park Road?

How many people on here used to live in one of these roads? I used to live at No 4 Elvino Rd and my Nan and Grandad used to live at No 41 Broseley Grove. This is going back to 1963/1972 as a rough figure and what families do you remember? Just a bit of a trip down memory lane for me i guess. :D Litt...

It's still there budwesier. It's a short cut through that goes between Mayow Road and Sydenham Road. Sort of runs paralell to the Hazel Grove Estate. You may know what was on that road previous? On Berrymans Lane there is now a fairly smart new development. When I moved here at the turn of the Mill...

I think both doctors must have been there together in about 1965/66 so i would have been 4 or 5 years old then. I remember going in for the polio vaccination which was put onto a sugar lump but i vomited it up so had to have the injection! :D

Cobbs.

I remember that the shoe dept used to have an X-ray machine that you could put your foot in and see through a green light, all the bones in your foot! :D Played on that until a floor walker told me off and that it wasn`t a toy!.

It is strange about there not being a decent fish & chip shop in Sydenham. I ten to use the Blue Dolphin in Penge which is quite good. Fish shops - there's Moxon's in Lordship Lane (East Dulwich) which is obviously closer than Borough market. I know it's pure nostalgia and it won't solve the curren...
