Personal observations:
From Steve Cane
"I lived at 113 Chiswick Village from 1959 to 1969.
My aunt and her family lived at 114 from 1959 to about 1961.

The things I remember were:
The unreliable lift which regularly broke down.
The caretaker, Mr Keighley, who didn't allow us to play football on the green (which was covered in dog's muck in any case!).
The Dunlop family who were residents - (including daughter Lesley, the TV actress).
The Woodward family who were residents - including actors Tim and Edward.
Walking back from cubs along the railway line under the dark bridge with no lighting - scary!"
