Shop in Cemetery rd Forest Gate
« on: 12 May, 2009, 03:08:59 PM »
Does anyone remember a shop at 58 Cemetery Road, Forest Gate in 1940. A lady called Maud Gage ran it and had a son called Harry who was fighting in the war. In 1942 it got bombed and she moved to 141 Odessa rd just around the corner. On Cemetery road next door to the shop at number 60 lived John and Mabel Pickin and children Irene, Ivy, William and Dorothy.

What did MAUD sell in her shop and does anyone remember the Pickin family that lived in this area. They were shoemakers by trade.
