South Loftus

Mr Jim Fishlock approaching the coal house and former outdoor toilets at South Loftus ; in the days before flush toilets, ash pans were used and emptied each week by a council dustbin lorry. Dustbin men in those days were colloquially known as ‘night soil men’!

Thanks to Paul Brown for the update.

    This is Jim Fishlock, we have lived at No.9 since 1980, and I think that picture is from the mid to late 1980’s. (The Wheelie Bin is a clue) People come and people go, but not a lot changes!
