Maud and Percy brought up their 4 children in Carshalton Beeches at 10 Willis Avenue. Unfortunately, no photos exist of the interior but on this page, we have the best photo taken of the house.

10 Willis Avenue, Carshalton Beeches, Surrey – the home where Maud and Percy brought up their family.

This was not made into a Lantern Slide but was almost certainly photographed by Percy.

Date: From the date Dennis gave for this car, this must have been taken in the 1930s.

If I remember rightly the name of the family next door on the other side of this semi-detached was Butts? Terry their son was younger than my Mum, but she was always very impressed by the son, Terry, who in those days I believe bought a vintage British Motorbike and restored it.

A common hobby now, but perhaps a new idea in the 1950s?

It hasn’t changed much at all! The Garage and windows have been replaced, but the front garden wall is the same!


Steve: This was my first home. When I was born in 1951 my parents (Margaret and Dig) were renting the top floor the rear part of which had been made into a separate flat. I’m sure there was a kitchen upstairs, but I think the bathroom must have been shared.
