Had a cousin through marriage who lived in Foreman Street, I think. I used to sneek into Mimms Inn ? for an underage drink.
I wanted to build a fortress, a bastion of invincibility.

Dawson - Old Lodge Rd is no longer there it's just a wee curve off Agnes St.  I came from Sydenham but worked at Jim Beck's grocery shop on the Old Lodge Rd - opposite Lonsdale St (also gone) for about 3 years 1959/61 Used to get off the bus at Carlisle Circus and walk down Lonsdale St.

My aunt and cousin. the Arnotts lived  on Broadbent st. She was blind.
Any one ever read the book by A. A.  Redmond 'Memories of the Hammer and the Old Lodge Rd'.

Hi DMW,
This was his life story gwoeing up in the 30s'-40s' has all the old shops, streets and characters. It's a good read and trip dow memomery lane.
I don't have a the book as my cousin sent it to me and wanted it back. I scanned it and have it on a word file.
I could email it if you or any others want it.
I may try putting it into a PDF format but I dont think that would make a file any smaller.
