In response to Steve’s thoughts on the date of the ‘new’ pool; well, I can state with certainty that I was swimming in it during the summer of ’66.
During that summer my Dad closed his butcher’s shop in Higham Hill Road for ‘half-day’ every Wednesday.
I can still taste the Bovril sold in the tiny cafe before going over to the chip shop opposite if Mum had given me enough money!
Happy (seemingly) days Steve JOHNSON I was so sorry to read the sad news about the recent passing of Richard Dunn.
The diving boards were platforms on some form of metal framework.
I remember Stan as a fearless goalkeeper who always played with his sleeves rolled up and I was very Sad when he left the Orient to join the Avenue. Len BASSETT Hi Bill, Reading your piece about the ‘new pool’ brought back many memories to me, but I think you’re mistaken with the year that it opened, as in 1965 I was swimming for the Walthamstow Swimming Club and won 2 trophies in the club championships at the ‘old’ baths in the High Street. Sorry to be such a pedant Best Wishes Steve JOHNSON Thanks Brian, Good to hear from you.
My interest in Walthamstow is entirely focussed on the Lestor family.
Stan Gerula lived in London until he died on August 29th 1979.
His body was taken home to Poland and he was buried in the Rakowice Cemetery in Krakow.
