"Kit and Ernie Halsey, c.1930, with their children Standing at the back, Ernie Halsey, junior; young women on left, Grace and Phyllis; girl in white on right, Dorothy. Little child in scalloped dress: Stanley. It is thought that this family kept a grocery shop in Stebondale Street, where they lived (although it looks like East Ferry Road in the background here). Kit and Ernie moved (probably retired) to Bexley (probably during World War Two). " Donated by Mrs Hitchins
