Philbeach Gardens Resident (Al Stewart)
Al Stewart, who had huts in the 70s with the sings ’Year of the Cat’ and ’On The Borders’, lived in Philbeach Gdns for a while and referenced Earl’s Court in a couple of his songs.
I lived in Philbeach Gardens from a child until my late teens. For a few years, on one evening in the midst of Summer, you could hear Al Stewart songs ringing out across Philbeach Gardens, particularly from his album ’Time Passages". I don’t think Al was living there at the time but perhaps he came back to see some pals. Or perhaps the broadcasters were just his fans,like me.
Either way, it was a wonderful treat to hear!

Hurstway Street, W10
Jimmy Bloomfield who played for Arsenal in the 1950s was brought up on this street. He was a QPR supporter as a child, as many locals would be at the time, as a teen he was rejected by them as being too small. They’d made a mistake

Wren Road in the 1950s and 60s
Living in Grove Lane I knew Wren Road; my grandfather’s bank, Lloyds, was on the corner; the Scout District had their office in the Congregational Church and the entrance to the back of the Police station with the stables and horses was off it. Now very changed - smile.

Peckham Rye

Peckham Rye is Cockney rhyming slang for tie (necktie).

Peckham Rye, with a station on Rye Lane, lies in the centre of the shopping district of Peckham in South London.

Peckham Rye itself is an open space in the London Borough of Southwark. The roughly triangular open space with Peckham Rye Common to the north and Peckham Rye Park to the south. The road called Peckham Rye forms the western and eastern perimeter of the open space.

Peckham Rye railway station opened on 1 December 1865 for LC&DR trains and on 13 August 1866 for LB&SCR trains. It was designed by Charles Henry Driver, the architect of Abbey Mills and Crossness pumping stations, who also designed the grade II listed Denmark Hill and Battersea Park stations between here and Victoria.

It was on the Rye in the 1760s that the artist William Blake claimed to have seen visions, including one of a tree filled with angels, bright angelic wings bespangling every bough like stars.

During World War II, part of the Common became a Prisoner of War camp for Italian prisoners of war.
