The site of the present Strand Shopping centre was an area known as little America, because all the streets were named after states in America.
My grandparents lived in Vermont street during the war and when I was a child (born 1946) they lived in Delaware Street. My father was the manager of a grocery shop in Strand Road after he returned from the war.
My husbands family also came from this area.
Washington St, Vermont St, Delaware St. Nevada St, Jersey St, Carolina St, Florida St,
