There was a ¾ size billiard table at the pub, which moved with the family to their new home in Southend-on-Sea. During the war it was used as an air raid shelter, with chicken wire put around the legs. If the bomb blast didn’t kill you, the slate collapsing on you would have! When my Aunt Grace moved into a smaller house, the table went to my Mums in Berkshire, with a room having to be specially built for it. It is used all year long, for meals and especially for the Howes Christmas challenge Cup. ***

Arms in Stondon Massey, Essex. I was born and raised in Stondon Massey until
my parents along with my siblings and myself moved to America in 1949. *

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London
street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus
images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also
carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with
1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
