  1. Our family moved from Beechdale to Russell Road Forest Fields in 1961 and I clearly remember how excited I was by the huge variety of shops on Berridge Rd and the surrounding streets. I was even more taken when I discovered that some of the sweetshops were open on Sundays. I particularly remember a grocers shop on the corner of Burford Rd and Beaconsfield St. I think it was called Richardsons and it was very run down. The poor old grey haired lady who ran it (presumably Mrs Richardson) was really struggling and most of her stock was in a very sorry state. Of course there were no best before dates then but I imagine much of the stuff she sold was well past its best. My friend Peter Tulley used to tell me how he and his mates gazed in the window to watch the insects crawling over the old faded products on display. It certainly wouldn’t be allowed to go on in a food shop these days. I see on Streetview the building is still there but the display window has been bricked up during its conversion to a dwelling. I’ve also been racking my brains (not much left to rack these days) trying to remember the name of the Fish & Chip shop on the corner of Ewart Rd and Berridge in the 60s I think it was Carsons or something similar. The couple that owned it were also in The Salvation Army and I often used to see them in their uniforms on a Sunday. It was great Fish & Chip shop and in 1961 you could get a 4d mix which was chips with mushy peas on top with a bonus of batter bits for free. I think that was the start of my love affair with mushy peas. It wasn’t long before the price went up to 6d. 50% inflation in the early 60s what a cheek! There’s a scene in The Ragman’s Daughter which features it. Someone related that it was called George’s but I think that was later on.
