Milson Road (1908 - 1954)
My grandparents and great grandparents and great great grandparents the Manley family lived at 33 Milson Road from 1908 to 1935. My grandad was born at 33 Milson Road. His parents George and Grace had all four of their chidren there. When his father Edward died his mother moved to 67 Milson in 1935 Road and lived there until 1954 (records found so far, it may be longer). Before that they lived in the Porten Road. I wonder if there is anyone that used to know them? My grandad was Charles ’Ted’ Manley, his parents were called George and Grace and George’s parents were called Edward and Bessie. George worked in a garage and Edward was a hairdresser.

Old London postcard

Lochnagar Street, looking east towards Islay Wharf Before the coming of the Blackwall Tunnel approach road, there was a road called Brunswick Road from which Lochnagar Street ran and from which this photo was taken. This area of Poplar contains a large number of streets with Scottish names because they were built on an estate which had been bought by the McIntosh family in 1823. The initial letters of local street names were chosen alphabetically - Aberfeldy Street, Ailsa Street, Blair Street, Culloden Street, Dee Street, Ettrick Street, Findhorn Street, Leven Road, Oban Street, Portree Street, Spey Street, Teviot Street, Wyvis Street and Zetland Street.
