South Oxhey in the Fifties

How things have changed

I came to South Oxhey in 1955 from Whitechapel on an exchange scheme. First lived in a house in Prestwick Road, opposite the bank. Moved from there, on another exchange, to Trevose Way. Have been there since 1958.

Where I live, there was a big green opposite, which was lovely, then they built a lot of Warden Control flats, which is now called The Harrogate Club. I am the second longest tenant in the road.

So much has changed in the precinct of shops. Now there are too many eating places, no ladies shop, no men’s shop, no wet fish shop, no shoe shop, no children’s shop.
