    I, my two sisters and parents lived at 21Caldew Street which ran between Addington Square and Cheam Place. It ran parallel to New Church Road. I did find some photographs of Caldew Street on the internet but unfortunately they have since disappeared. We lived there from 1939 till about 1955. Like many others l used the public baths in Wells Way. As l was only able to pay for 2nd Class sometimes l had to suffer the indignanty of the attendant opening the door to tell me to hurry up. I returned to the area in around 1965 to live at the New Church Road end of Southampton Way. My neighbour, who went to the public meeting about the proposed creation of Burgess Park, told me of a well spoken man who protested that the size and shape of the proposed park was perfect for the landing of light aircraft and could assurances be given that it would not be used for that purpose. Like many others l have fond memories of the area but l do wish l could discover those photographs again.
