Ten years ago today I created the 327th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.
On the 29th September 1939 a census was taken, following the declaration that the country was at war with Germany, to record who lived in the United Kingdom, in order to enable the issuing of identity cards and ration books. It reveals some interesting facts about Greenford, in this case, the accommodation of firemen and ambulance crews in two blocks of flats just off Greenford Road. They didn’t have far to walk to work, the ambulance station is still there but the fire station was in the space now taken up by the block of flats in Dairy Close. I wonder if they realised how much would be expected of them as they prepared for war.
