I will try and see if my Auntie has any photos of Cyril and Clive.  I know Auntie Trix didn't like her photo being taken so there are not too many of those around.

Hi Ingrid,

Thanks so much for your nice message! That's great that you live there - it's such a lovely place to live, and that's such a great idea to start your blog. I shall have to take a look!

I don't know much about what goes on there now sadly - although I always get a glimpse of the flats when I'm on the train from Maidenhead to Paddington, just as it leaves Ealing Broadway of course, and it always makes me think of my mother.

I'm not sure I have many more photos taken inside/outside the flat than I've put on here - I can certainly take a look though.
Obviously you're more than welcome to use any of the photos on here if they're of use to you - that's no problem at all :)

It's great my mother lived in two different place there - the semi in Monks Drive, and of course the flat at Rutland Court.
Many thanks again for writing, & well done again with the blog!

Best wishes,

Steve

Hi Steve, 

I came across the page your wrote about your mother Christine Cann whilst looking for pictures of Hanger Hill Garden Estate.  I moved in the area 4 years ago when my daughter was born and I loved seeing your pictures.  I love this area and although I don't know anything about blogging I started a blog teaclubofhangerhill about the area (there's nothing much on there yet I'm trying to make sense of how it work etc. as I am a complete novice to the whole digital/web world).  I was wondering if you would share more memories and pictures of the area with me.  I would love to see more of life here, what houses were like inside too, people who might still live here, etc. 

Let me know either way

Thanks

Ingrid

Thanks Mary - that's so interesting! I'd love to see the article/photos - I seem to remember seeing the newspaper article at the time too, but never had my own copy.
This is so helpful - I'll be in touch!
Thanks again,

Steve

Hi Steve,

I work for Chiswick Library Local Studies. I am just researching one of W W Cann's sons, Walter Sydney (or Sidney) Cann who was killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, 1 July 1916.  I have a scan of a newspaper item about his death. In the library we have 2 photos of the shop in Devonshire Road, 1970s. One includes Cyril (?) with the delivery bicycle, just before his retirement and shop closure. I expect it was covered in the local newspaper.  I can supply a bit more information, but please contact Local Studies (see http://www.hounslow.info/libraries/local-history-archives/) if you would like copies of the photos or article.

Kind regards,

Mary Marshall

Hi Charlotte!

It's great to hear from you - I'm glad you enjoyed the stuff about Cyril, and the shop. It seems us Canns are a bigger extended family than I ever realized! And it's always good to meet another Cann.
Thanks for you kind comments - have a great day :)

Best wishes,
Steve
