Until this evening I had always assumed this area of Chingford was long gone, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Connaught Waters still exists, and the pictures I saw on the web don't look a whole lot different to this vintage postcard from the early 1900's. The postcard was published by Wildt and Kray, series 530. It's artist drawn and I'm pretty sure there are 2 small initials in the lower right-hand corner of the card, but I can't decipher them. If anyone knows the artist, please let me know.
Avid music listener and collector since the late 1970's. I like all sorts of genres ... punk, post-punk, new wave, industrial, ambient, krautrock, alternative, indie, goth ... naturally I have quite a few items I no longer need in physical format, so here's a link to my records and CDs for sale
Having grown up in one of the London suburbs, I'm also interested in John Betjeman, J.G.Ballard, London suburbs, Avengerland (Borehamwood area where the classic 1960's and 1970's TV shows were filmed).
