67 – 83 ALPHA ROAD ( LATER ALPHA GROVE)

THIS ROW OF HOUSES BACKED ON TO MILLWALL INNER DOCK PERIMETER FENCE. NUMBER 83 ON THIS NEAR END WAS DESTROYED IN WW2. TO THE RIGHT WAS AN ENTRANCE TO CLARKS SUGAR REFINERY. NUMBER 67 AT FAR END OF THIS ROW STOOD ON THE CORNER OF TOOKE ST. OPPOSITE NUMBER 83 HERE STANDS ALPHA HALL WHICH IS STILL THERE, ORIGINALLY THE WESLEYAN METHODIST CHAPEL WITH SEATING FOR 250. THE IRON RAILINGS HERE WERE REMOVED FOR WW2 ARMAMENTS. I LIVED IN NUMBER 67 FROM 1948 – 1955
