I went to Millfields [school] back in the '50s and my brother did too during the war years. On their website I also saw your blog, which led me to your Clapton Pond blogsite. It's interesting what you can find on line. We used to live in Powell Road behind what used to be the Ritz cinema. My brother was back in England earlier this year and found the cinema's no longer there. I now live in California and my brother lives in Ottawa, Canada but I remember growing up in Clapton and I remember the Pond. From pictures I've seen it looks like it's been cleaned up. My brother actually fell in the Pond when he was a kid!
Thanks for such a lovely letter. And should you - or anyone else - wish to revive the former Ritz cinema*, you could start by signing here.
UPDATE: But it wasn't the Ritz, was it, Dave? It was the Kenning Hall. Sign up anyway, though.
