the history of Walthamstow

Thursday evenings at Ye Olde Rose and Crown in Hoe Street E17 is a cheap workshop given by Radical History Group with Neil Houghton presenting all about what went down in E17. It is fantastic because us 50 + group of interested residents and locals have to be hands on . On Thursday we researched census returns and learnt to smash all our assumptions and to reference and record. Love it. What a history! Next week is all about the poor.

It’s not as you imagine in any which way. Neil surprises us always and we are a good bunch of people not diverse culturally (by looking) but diverse in our reasons for attending. David Boote from Walthamstow (free) Walks comes too and what with Roger Huddle there we get to know what’s coming up and what we can join.

The pub is great. Every Thursday there’s a vintage dress sale. I just like to touch; it’s like going through my mum’s sparse wardrobe in the fifties.The dresses are reasonably priced (forty quid and lowering weekly) and some are even bigger than size nothing!

Opposite the Ye Olde Rose and Crown is La Delice a favourite eaterie for many Dalstonion look alikes . Yeah I said it. It is clean and busy. Mind you I waited ten minutes for a hot chocolate. The food is great looking but I hate to open my purse sometimes and time was against me on that occasion.
