The Moore Family
were living at 79 Leverson
Street, Streatham, London until about 1934 when they moved to 95
Southcroft road, Tooting, London, SW17.
79 Leverson Street, Tooting. It was a
terraced Victorian house that had been split into two flats.
The Moore family had the ground floor flat. That is Ron
Moore outside the front garden. Today the house has been
improved with double glazing and new pebble dashing. It did
not look this good in the 1930's. We were
friends with another Family named “Platen”. The daughter was
Cynthia who was our friend. The house was too small for our
family of eight so they looked for a bigger house.
It is amazing that the house is still standing as the row of
houses on the other side of the road have been re built
after they were demolished by German WW2 Bomb. Aunt Nell was a formidable woman who ran a
newsagents sweet shop in nearby Kettering Street on the
corner with Fallsbrook Road. Uncle Ted
Groves also lived in Eastwood Road. He was a watch maker and
jeweller who worked in London.
