Did you live, work or move to the Vassall Ward between 1950 and 1980?

Do you remember when there were houses, shops and streets before the new estates were built?
Did you move into the new estates when they were built in the 1970s and 1980s?
Share your memories at the Minet Archives.

All memories will help us build up a picture of the past which will be held in the Archive. We hope to record your memories too so that they can be shared with other people (only with your permission). We will provide resources to help job memories, eg shop names, newspaper articles, estate brochures.
