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

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.

How many more young black men will have to die like Rashan Charles? | Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi
No one will be properly held to account for the 20-year-old’s killing, as state impunity is allowed to continueIn the early hours of 22 July 2017, a tall, slightly built young man walked into Yours Locally, a mini-supermarket off Kingsland Road; a lively street in an increasingly gentrified area of east London. Many of the nearby bars and clubs would have been starting to fill up.In contrast to many of the clubbers and partygoers out that evening, the man was black, and had been born and bred in the area. He was father to a little girl just shy of her second birthday. He had plans for the weekend. On Sunday, he was going to visit his grandmother. She was going to teach him how to make his favourite chicken stew. Related: Police officer who ar

Royal Oak

Royal Oak is a station on the Hammersmith and City Line, between Westbourne Park and Paddington stations, and is the least used station on the Hammersmith and City line.

The station opened 30 October 1871 although the Metropolitan Railway extension to Hammersmith had opened in 1864.

It is close to the elevated Westway section of the A40 road. The station is named after a nearby public house, The Royal Oak (later The Railway Tap and now The Porchester). It is one of a number of Underground stations named after a local pub.

Royal Oak Portal is the Western tunnel entrance for the Crossrail scheme to link East and West London by main-line railway. The station itself is not part of the Crossrail scheme.
