recollections, photos and memorabilia of Leyton and Leytonstone
John Harris writes in response to Keith Tjaden. I am 60 now and was brought up in Queens Road Leytonstone. Keith Tjaden sparked a few memories for me. For a short time I was a paper boy for Alice (the paper lady mentioned by Keith) when her stand was close to Leytonstone tube station in the newly made gardens where Fairlop Road met Fillebrook Road, opposite Ray Powell's and near the "Hole in the Wall" flower shop. I recall collecting my paper round from Alice in a basement near to Erith's the builders merchants by Leytonstone BR station in the High Road.
