West Silvertown On Line – Times Past

Former residents of West Silvertown have contributed a collection of pictures and written material which we are delighted to share with the present residents of West Silvertown and other visitors to this site:-

Stan’s Gallery - a collection of photographs in years past along with "Silvertown Life - a boy’s story" - a fascinating and humourous account of Stan’s life in West Silvertown from his birth in 1945 until he moved to Basildon in 1964.
Journey’s In My Time - a collection of short stories written by Keith Lloyd who now lives in Ilford

Albert’s Page - Albert's book Memories of Different Happenings in World War II is a touching account of the life of an airman in World War II which cannot help but move the reader as Albert takes a trip down memory lane into the world of the 1940s. There's also a short story Stealing an Egg about a family incident in 1931.
Ken’s Poems - Ken Smith wanted to make a record of his life in the East End, largely for the benefit of his grandchildren, and although he set about writing his story somehow it seemed easier to express it in verse. So we publish here a collection of his poems.Ken, too, has moved out of the East End and he now lives in Grays Essex. But he still has fond memories of of his childhood years in the East End
