London City Airport (LCY) is located within the Royal Docks, London Borough of Newham.

London City Airport is situated 9.7 km east of the City of London and was built by the Mowlem engineering company in 1987.

The first proposal for such an airport was in 1981 - made by the London Docklands Development Corporation, the organisation then responsible for the regeneration of the area.

The airport has a single 1508 metre runway, and because of its situation, multi-engine, fixed-wing aircraft only up to Airbus A318 size are allowed to conduct operations.

The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) opened its London City Airport station on its Woolwich branch (originally the King George V branch), opening on 2 December 2005.

Cundy Road, E16
I lived there for about 3 years after I was born in 1946. My grandparents uncle & aunt also lived there along with two female cousins. All Andersons’. My elder sister, 5 years older than me, also went to school locally, Shipman Road School I believe. I would love to hear from somebody who still
remembers us.

The Beatles on a London rooftop
The Beatles’ rooftop concert took place on the rooftop of the Apple Corps building in London. It was their final public performance as a band and was unannounced, attracting a crowd of onlookers. The concert lasted for 42 minutes and included nine songs. The concert is remembered as a seminal moment in the history of rock music and remains one of the most famous rock performances of all time.

The Bombing of Nant Street WW2
My uncle with his young son and baby daughter were killed in the bombing of Nant Street in WW2. His wife had gone to be with her mother whilst the bombing of the area was taking place, and so survived. Cannot imagine how she felt when she returned to see her home flattened and to be told of the death of her husband and children.

Malcolm Davey at Raleigh House, Dolphin Square
My former partner, actor Malcolm Davey, lived at Raleigh House, Dolphin Square, for many years until his death. He was a wonderful human being and an even better friend. A somewhat underrated actor, but loved by many, including myself. I miss you terribly, Malcolm. Here’s to you and to History, our favourite subject.

My mother, and my Aunt and my Aunt’s family lived at number 1 Abourne Street.
I remember visitingn my aunt Win Housego, and the Housego family there. If I remember correctly virtually opposite number 1, onthe corner was the Lord Amberley pub.
