I have a 'Feeling in my water' that many,many years ago, I set foot in a Public House called the 'Catford Ram'.

Apropos Lewisham, I recall visiting a chap, in Lewisham Hospital, who had been a victim of an assault. I heard loud shrieks and a young lad raced in shouting at the top of his voice "I have just been stabbed in the ar.e".
It certainly was not a salubrious locality back in the day but it might have vastly improved as other areas have done over the years.

I remember the Catford Ram too. It was a Youngs pub and was closed down a few years ago after a drug raid (nothing to do with your visit Willo - unless you are Inspector Willo of the Yard).
It reopened as the Black Cat.

Thank you for the information.

I lived in Wallington as a lad and my first car, financed by paper rounds, was an Austin 7.

When I needed spares or parts I headed to Lewisham where there was a wonderful workshop/store specialising in Austin 7s. There was nothing you couldn't get there. Long gone now I suspect.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Thanks for the reminder willo, just as we were getting over it, alas, Lewisham makes Croydon look like Beverley Hills!

Where I used to live we regarded Lewisham as a right s*** hole. And that's saying something considering I lived in Erith!!

 


Palace since 19 August 1972. Palace 1 (Tony Taylor) Liverpool 1 (Emlyn Hughes)
