DescriptionThis interview with Mrs Ridgeway Hawkyard, former East Dulwich resident, contains reminiscences about life in and around Dulwich before and after World War 2. We hear many detailed and fascinating insights about life on Lordship Lane where the owners of shops lived above them, her experiences travelling on the trams and trips to Court Farm in Dulwich. We also hear about the huge changes in population in the area during the 1930s and her experiences, including harrowing accounts, of the living through the Blitz. The recording runs throughout the day at the Local History Library and Archive during opening hours and is free to listen for visitors.
