John remembers street games in the Vauxhall Road in the 1930s.

John was born and grew up in Vauxhall Road, where his parents were landlords of The Trevor Arms, opposite Sparkes’ Bakery.  He remembers playing street games in the 1930s.  John is a born entertainer and his memories are recounted with great humour.

This photograph was taken in The Picturedrome Theatre in June 2011 with his wife Jeannette, who contributes memories of Tuffley Avenue.

You can find more of John’s memories here and here.
