when I used to walk to school at Downderry I went past Mrs Farmers sweet stall in Shroffold road just down from Moorside cross roads this was in the early 50s anybody recall the stall and buying sweets for a happenny i/e fruit salad and black jacks lovely lady and her son repaired clocks.
I moved up to Downham from Walworth in 1949 came up on a tram went to Downderry school untill 1953 then went to Durham Hill tec college for teds.
Anybody remember the airplane that landed on Durham hill and they took it to pieces to get it off and when they took the tram lines up in Downham way we were up and down with the pram getting tarry blocks for the fire bornt a treat and saved mum&dad some coal money.I have had some great times on Downham and I still live here today just down from my old alma marta which they pulled down a few years back.
