Valuable resource for outer East London, a suburb that went from being a rural hamlet to the industrial centre of the southeast in about 50 years.
Can't get too Stratford library so on line would help me a lot.

Hello. Does anyone know how we can view archival press from the Stratford Express from the 1980-1986?
Does anyone have any information on St Saviours FC who played in the Ilford and District League c.1912 up to around 1925 and games covered by the Stratford Express. Thank you . Chris

Does anyone out there have a photograph of Ashburton Secondary on Freemasons Road, not the newer extension the original old Victorian building. I was there in the early 70’s and I would love a photo of it. I loved that school.
if anyone was at that school during the early 70’s it would be good to catch up
After any info on Stratford Magistrates Court it was located in Great Eastern Street and took its business from the Leyton and Forest Gate area. Not a particularly secure courthouse the occasional customer didnt wait for his just deserts and legged it out into Great Eastern Street to hide away till recognised as wanted. In 1987 it was independant of West Ham Lane Magistrates Court and both were presided over by Benches of Lay-Magistrates (People taken from the local communities) from titled Ladies to Street Market Stall Operators and London Bus Drivers. They were not easily fooled and would impose custodial sentences immediately if warranted. The two courthouses eventually merged prior to moving to High Street in 1994. Both were petrol bombed circa 1988 fortunately without injury.
