People are invited to send any early photo(s), of your family, friends, neighbours, of your local area, shop(s), street.  Also stories of childhood memories, of long summer days, of old school days, of friends and family, as told from ordinary folks early recollections.

Many have been published on the website, but a series of books have also been published entitled Common Folk, by Colin Weightman. Details can be found on the site of how to order the books.

It is a site that you can happily wander round and find information about the area and some of its inhabitants. It can be found at Plumstead Stories - including Woolwich and District.  (with thanks to the North West Kent Family History Society Journal Editor for information about this site).
