  • Lovely memories. I was born in Tedder Gardens where I lived with my Mum, Dad and older sister, 1951/58. Loads of room to play, ditches to fall in,allotments to wander through. Even a little fresh water spring across the Beckton Road where we would catch Red Belly’s. Loads off other kids to play with. Such magical times. Xx

  • I grew up in Paget Gardens on the
    Beckton Eisenhower Estate, fond memories
    I also have some photos from that time too,
    which is good as I do not see Paget Gardens
    mentioned at all.
    So much space and places to play in, we had
    a long walk down Beckton Road past the iron
    Foundary to catch the 101 bus which I believe
    still runs now.
    I enjoyed David Davenports memories they are
    an accurate account of our childhood.

  • Great memories of living there from 1965-69, which is a long time between 3 and 7 years old. David confirmed my memory of going to the community centre for vaccinations.My parents thought nothing of sending me to the shops in Eisenhower Drive as it was so safe.

  • Loved seeing the pictures and reading what David wrote about his memories of his childhood prefab home. It was similar in many ways to my childhood in a prefab in London. Happy memories.
