Post by Julia elsdon: Shirland Mews, W9

I didn’t come from Shirland Mews, but stayed there when my father was visiting friends, sometime in the mid to late forties. As I was only a very young child I don’t remember too much. I seem to think there were the old stables or garages with the living accommodation above. My Mother came from Malvern Road which I think was near Shirland Mews. I remember a little old shop which had a "milk cow outside". So I was told, it was attached to the front of the shop and you put some money in and the milk would be dispensed into your container. Not too sure if it was still in use then. Just wonder if anyone else remembers it.yz5

Tara Wright obituary
My mother-in-law, Tara Wright, who has died aged 68 after suffering from cancer, overcame the stigma of becoming a single mother in Ireland in the late 1960s to make a new life for herself in England, where she eventually became a headteacher. She raised not only the son from her initial pregnancy but another three children from a long-lasting marriage.Born Philomena Begley in Tralee, County Kerry, to Patrick, a postmaster, and his wife, Bridget, she studied hard at the strict Mountmellick Convent school in Co Laois. Challenging the nuns’ low expectations, she won a place at Trinity College Dublin, to study English. But she left within 18 months after a romantic liaison with a fellow student resulted in pregnancy. Aged 19, she was effectively disowned by her parents and in early 1970 was forced to leave for England

Paddington

The first underground railway station in the world ran from Paddington - opened as Paddington (Bishop's Road) by the Metropolitan Railway on 10 January 1863 as the terminus of the company's route from Farringdon.

Paddington mainline railway station - Paddington station - has a commuter service serving stations west of London, a mainline service to Oxford, Bristol, Bath, Taunton, Devon, Cornwall and South Wales. There is also an express rail line to Heathrow Airport.

In Paddington Station there is a display case showing Paddington Bear, a character of children's fiction who, in the book, is first discovered at this station and hence named after it.

Important places in Paddington include St Mary's Hospital - where penicillin was discovered by Alexander Fleming - and Paddington Green police station.

John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
