I was born n bred at 25 Mc Gregor Rd in 1938 and lived there until I joined the Royal Navy in 1957. It was a very interesting time what with air raid shelters,bombed houses,water tanks all sorts of areas for little boys to collect scrap and sell them on.no questions asked.A very happy boyhood ,from there we could visit most areas of London by bus and tube and we did.

Dutch farce and pay tweak still jar with Unilever investors
Boss Paul Polman needs some cheering news next week to wash away the bad taste left by aborted Rotterdam moveThe safest course of action after a humiliating defeat at the hands of your own shareholders is to duck below the parapet and get on with your day job. Unfortunately for Unilever, maker of household staples from Dove soap to Hellmann’s mayonnaise, keeping a low profile isn’t going to be an option for at least another week.Chief executive Paul Polman scrapped plans last month to simplify the company’s Anglo-Dutch legal structure and transplant headquarters from London to Rotterdam, a move that would have seen its shares depart the FTSE 100.

High Street Kensington

High Street Kensington is a London Underground station at Kensington High Street.

Kensington High Street is a road (forming part of the A315) in Kensington, west London.

Its western extremity is the eastern end of Hammersmith Road near Kensington (Olympia) station. From here, the road heads east-north-east, past the Commonwealth Institute and High Street Kensington tube station. It forms a junction which Kensington Church Street, which runs to the north, and then continues east to the south-west corner of Kensington Gardens, close by Kensington Palace. Eastward the road becomes Kensington Road.

The stretch between the Commonwealth Institute and Kensington Gardens is a popular shopping area, with chainstores and upmarket shops serving a wealthy catchment area. In 2005 House of Fraser announced that it is closing the 135 year old Barkers department store in the street, meaning that it will have no department stores left after the earlier closures of Pontings and Derry & Toms. The 75,000 square foot premises will be taken over by Whole Foods Market, the American owner of organic supermarket chain Fresh & Wild to become the UK’s first organic superstore.

High Street Kensington station, on the District Line, opened in 1868.
