Walthamstow Avenue FC

In Uncategorized on January 27, 2011 at 1:28 pm

I was chatting with the guy who’d come to read my gas meter and he told me my estate of flats used to be Walthamstow Avenue FC’s football ground. I googled and found some wonderful old photos of the stands and ground. And one of the entrance to the estate as it is now. It’s funny to think the club was here until 1988 and then my flat was built in 1989. In the very last photo the photographer was standing pretty much where my flat is judging by the council flats in the background.
