I was browsing some posts in the uk d-i-y usenet group about keyed alike padlocks - in other words, a number of locks of padlocks which all open with the same key.
 
I noticed this post and wondered if it could refer to Ilford?
 
"That reminded me of when I started teaching in the 1960s in an outer London borough that had previously been part of Essex. I found that the key that was issued to me for my laboratory (school built 1924) was actually an Essex master key which could be used to open a whole range of pre war council buildings.  
 
Normally a teacher would be given the simplest key that just fitted the simplest lock fitted to classrooms. I found that
mine would open all the different locks in the school including the "strong room", outside doors, head masters study etc.  
 
On one occasion I was meeting the Chief Education Officer at the town hall only to find him locked out and was able to let him in!"

Back in the day a mate of mine had an old car key that would open and start most cars.Unfortunately the cars he used the key on weren't his.The key didn't work on his cell door !!
