The Norwood Society’s next local history talk is “Shopping at the Palace”.
Dairymen, corn chandlers, piano merchants, a butcher with a goat that wandered up and down Westow Street, saddle makers, tea gardens, two local newspapers, a bookshop with Ruskin’s father as a customer, grocers, a fish and chip shop, a windmill…
Alun Thomas traces aspects of the history of the Crystal Palace Triangle that had them all, and more.
The Norwood Society’s talks are held monthly at Upper Norwood Library, Westow Hill SE19 1TJ. This talk will start at 7.30pm on Thursday June 16.
On Sunday June 19, the society is staging a West Norwood Circular Walk. Starting at 2.30pm, meet on the front steps of St Luke’s Church, Norwood High Street, SE27 0HS. Led by Jill Dudman.
