9 ARGYLE STREET, LEYTONSTONE, SE LONDON
Just behind the Plough & Harrow is - or rather once was Argyle St. Here we see residents enjoying a tea party to celebrate the Jubilee of his Majesty King George the fifth. Seven years later the area was traumatized when a Wellington Bomber crashed nearby killing its crew and five Civil Defence workers. Thatís me kneeing up right of centre, my mum is far right, and our aunt Francis is next to her, and almost out of the picture. The photo came from a book about London that a friend lent me, imagine my surprise when I opened the page and there we all were. That's me seven kids down from the right kneeling up making myself seen - trust me.
