1958

I was born on the 16th October 1958 – at home because my older brother and sister were born in a hospital and it presumably was deemed safe for the 3rd child, me, to be born where my mother felt comfortable, or she couldn’t stop me being born as it was too late to get from Islington to Lewisham Hospital where my older brother was born.

My father used to work in the Metropolitan Police and they used these flats then as a section house for working police officers. The building still exists.
