Charny reunited…

I’d like to thank everyone who has left comments on the Charny blog. There have been over seventy so far, and it’s great to see that they have helped to put some people who lived in the area back in touch with each other.

They have also added some really interesting information and memories, and provided me with photographs that I would never have found anywhere else. This one is of Tony Towers (on the right) sitting on the front step of his house at 252 Charnwood Street around 1942 with Malcolm Ball, the son of Les Ball who had the cooked meat shop next to Frank Lee’s on the left, and Valerie Bowers. Her family kept the B P Cycle Radio Co. wireless shop at 250 Charnwood Street. Tony was born at 252, next to Paddy’s Swag Shop, in 1935 and lived there until he joined the Royal Air Force in 1953.

Many thanks, Tony – and keep sending the comments…
