My family moved into 59 Lower Jackwood Close when I was 3 months old. We lived in Lambeth and moved here in 1947. My father told me about the deep snow that year and how he took my pram to collect coal to keep our prefab warm. I have attached photos of my parent in our garden which my father loved. He won many front garden prizes which the council awarded for his floral displays. I have also attached a photograph of our Coronation street party in 1953. Many of the children in the picture were good friends of mine for many years growing up. I have made contact with one family Eileen Prosser who was Jolin who lived at 62 four doors away from me. Other families I remember are the Elliot’s, Morphy, Lazelles, Brooks, Peaks, Stitson, Perry, Crudge, Halls, Haggetty , Antoniadis and Basildon. I have happy memories living in Lower Jackwood Close, sadly we were one of the last families along with the Peaks to move out of the street before it was demolished in 1961/62.
