About this memory

James Payne (in foreground), Marian Payne (holding gate).

The garden can be seen from the early 1940s in previous photographs.

“Since then, in the background, prefabs were built for people bombed out in the East End of London. This had been a playground for children in the area, so we kids weren’t too happy.” – Marion Thom (née Payne)
