Where is everyone from and Age

Although I don't post regularly on here I do check the pages every few weeks or so especially as the forum helped me when I was looking to move to Ilford (one year anniversary just passed).  
 
However, it seems apparent that many posters on here are not from Ilford or the borough of Redbridge at all.  Also with many reminiscing about the good old days, my guess is that there are some older posters on here too.
 
So more out of curiousity would love to know where everyone now lives and your age.  
 
I'll start:  Location (Ilford - Commonwealth Estate) Smiley, Age: 40  Undecided

I was born in Grays two months before the first V1 attack. When I was 6 months old I was lucky to survive a V1 explosion close by - this was rather a nasty one by all accounts, causing serious damage over a radius of about three quarters of a mile!

You are an Essex boy like me, Manor Park may have a London post code, but pre 1965 it was part of East Ham which, along with West Ham, were County Borough's of Essex.

And I always thought that because I was that little bit closer to the sound Of Bow Bells I was a Cockney!

I was born in 1934 in the Midland bank next door to the town hallHigh Road Ilford actually in the flat above! Where my dad was manager. Things have changed drastically since those days,which seems such a shame my main memories are the Mecca dance hall and the Baptist church in Green Lane and the cinema opposite, all gone now?

I was schooled in 128 Norfolk Road Seven Kings. Went to Downshall infants/secondary and then Tom Hood in Leytonstone. Left 7kings in about 1962. Went to Hutton and then left. I wonder what allowed the downward slide to the suburbs becoming GHETTOSHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuh

you've said on one of your posts that you left 7kings (its seven kings) in the early 1960s,...   how can u say seven kings has become a "GHETTO" if you have been living in western Australia for many years and haven't even visited the place,.. or are you just going by "what you have seen on the news or on the internet" Huh?    Roll Eyes
