The Rest, Victoria Avenue.
While exploring my box marked “Dads Treasure”, I discovered some birthday cards, my first birthday. One of these was in its original envelope and addressed to myself. I was surprised to find that it was addressed to The Rest, Victoria Avenue, Langdon Hills, Laindon. Now I had always believed that, since coming home from St Johns Hospital, Chelmsford, where I was born, I had always lived in Pound Lane, Laindon. I was born 1947, the postmark is 1948 and I’ve looked at a map dated 1950, so I have seen where Victoria Avenue was. Now I’m intrigued, as I knew nothing about this until yesterday. Whose house was this ? How long did I live there ? What type of house was it ? Is anything still there, the house, the road ? All too much mystery for me to handle alone, so I’m hoping someone can come up with some information regarding this. Also be nice if any photos were available. Fingers crossed ! Thanks.
