I remember Mrs Staines cafe she put a radio gram upstairs so we could all gather there and play records in the 50s

The chapel between New Conduit Street & Broad Street was the Stepney Baptist Chapel. I was a member of the 1st Stepney Brownies between 1959 and 1961 and we met in the rooms at the back of the chapel. Miss Mary Seaman was Brown Owl - she was a tearcher at St Edmund's Infant School in North Lynn along with my Mum and I believe a Mrs Ewan was Tawny Owl. We had 4 "Sixes" - Pixies, Goblins, Fairies & Elves (i.e. 24 Brownies in total.)

When we built the New Conduit section of centre of the town and before my crane was erected I worked with
the steelfixers for a while. The man I worked with was Paddy Chilvers and I helped him build the steel cages
that went into the ground beams that now hold up the buildings in the street. Picture not to good but you can
see the groundwork through the opening.

I remember the Greek restaurant upstairs above the Wimpy from the early 90s although I never ate in there and only remember it from when you had to go upstairs to use the Wimpy toilets. To be honest, I don't think I ever knew anyone who had eaten in the Greek restaurant and just assumed that the restaurant part was open after the downstairs Wimpy had closed? The Wimpy franchise was run by a Greek-Cypriot (Jacovos "Jack" Kyrris) family when I was living in Lynn.
