Charlesworth's Photographers Southall by Hannah (Member 10258318) on 21-Feb-2011
I have found some old family photographs in searching for ancestors and am looking for some information on the Charlesworth's Photographers in Southall. I may be able to find out the approximate dates of births of the people in the photo if I can find out when the photography shop was there in Southall. Can anyone help me?

King Street Shops by jean edward (Member 10247075) on 15-Feb-2011
Someone recently mentioned Devanneys and the fact that they sold Fishing Gear (and worms) I remember as I small child I used to have my nose pressed against the window looking at the Dolls and Games they had displayed, nobody seemed to buy them but it was wartime and there wasn't much money around.
Also further along the road was a Bata's shoe shop and when the war was over they had a hugh consi... more >>

    When we got married from North Hyde Lane, we had our reception indoors. I can remember we hired all the cutlery, crockery, glasses and trestles from a double-fronted shop near the Regina road end of King street. Can anyone remember the name of the shop?

    Denis re Mornington Road-yes you are correct.
    At the time of the raid, I was home for lunch(from Dormers Wells). I was out in the garden, and mum was chatting to the next door neighbour. Suddenly there was AA gunfire(no air raid warning), then the sounds of bombs dropping.

    Yes Pauline, I remember that shop in Regina Rd it was on the bend as the road curved round. I don't think it had an official name but sold loads of bits and pieces, also hired things out. It had big tables outside full of junk!!

  • Re: King Street Shops by Pauline Sykes (Member 10235828) on 16-Feb-2011
    No Jean, it wasn't actually in Regina road, it was at the end part of King Street, before you crossed over to Regina road. It was quite a nice looking shop, not at all tatty. It was on the same side as the Co-op, but a lot further up.
    The hiring of stuff was just a part of their service. They certainly didn't sell junk!

    The old St. Johns Chuech in King Street had a crypt beneath it. They used to hold sunday-school in the church itself and sometimes the crypt was open and us kids used to go down there, very eerie.

    My Grandparents moved to Southall from Islington around 1900. My Grandfather died in 1911, leaving my Grandmother to bring up six children.
    My Uncle joined the Navy at fifteen and served during WW1,
    My Grandmother worked on a local farm, could have been Heston Farm, and in the Havelock Arms Pub.
    I can only image how difficult it must have been for her in those days.

    I purchased a split cane fishing rod from Devanneys King St.I saved long and hard for it by collecting newspapers door to door then selling them to Brands salvage in Western Rd.An old chap who wore WW1 puttees called Taxi Austin worked there weighing up the salvage.

    When you tap in "Abraham Jordon Organ Tudor road Southall" you can click on and listen to a piece of music "Trumpet Tune" played on the organ, which was written in the 18th century. It's lovely to think it's coming from the church where we used to congregate when we were young at Tudor Road school at Easter time.

    Being so young, I can't even remember what kind of drink we had in those lovely gardens. Zeta was talking about 1945, and I can only remember drinking Tizer then (which wasn't very often). When I mentioned fires Yvonne, it was more of a red glow - several of them. It's strange how things like that stay in your mind. It must have been in 1936, just before my younger brother was born in the Ocober.

    Talking about the old uninhabited cottage, reminds me of a derelict house. Walking towards the police station, on the right just past Amsdens Newsagents, there was a pathway leading to a large derelict house-we believed this to be haunted.This was in the mid 1930's -ir was later demolished.

    I and my friend Dave Green, went to the Youth Club held at Western Rd School in the late 50's early 60's. After the club we would walk to a coffee bar oppersite Southall fire station, which sold rum barbars. In later years we would go to the bowling alley (ex picture house), where we saw Sid James & Sidney Taffler and thier wives. Ironicly in the 1980's my ex wife came to know Sid James's wife. Small world?

    I went to the Pioneer Youth Club about the same time as you Michael, played table tennis and also learned to dance there. They didn't have many records but I remember Route 66 was a favourite!
    I used to go with my friend Kit Baker, I don't remember the boys names but there was one chap with the nickname Nib - never did find out his real name.

    Oh Yvonne, how sad about David Willans. I can still see him in my mind's eye. He was a very strong looking young man and I remember the whole street had flags put out for him on his return from the war. I didn't realise he was so young when he died, but he was nine years younger than me. How tragic to survive the war and then get killed by buffers in the railway station. Everyone was upset about it.
