One thought on “Come on one of my walks …

  1. Just reminiscing about my childhood in SW 18 I used to live on the east hill estate near st georges hospital dad had a shop in st John’s hill called the radio shack (not the USA one) used to walk to clapham junction and the other way to the high street to the Arndale centre then onto king georges park in the 70s I used to go to Eltringham school near that concrete roundabout – dare say east hill has been redeveloped by now? Hated the smell of hops from the Brewery !
