The Street(s) Where She Lived

Postby IWannaBeABluesSinger » Tue Apr 07, 2015 5:28 am

I found these videos of a guy, with a dashcam, driving around London. Lo and behold this one starts out on a familiar road. He makes a right turn at 0:53 seconds onto Aubrey Walk and at 1:46 you can see number 38 on the right (blink and you'll miss it). I had no idea that street was so cramped.

He heads to a main road, just as Dusty would have, and then onto a motorway which passes through Wembley. His other videos show more of the center of London and there are a few familiar buildings along the way. They are a great way to see London without the expense (are you listening Jeffery?)

I am returning to Hove again in a few weeks, the first time since my mum passed.
I discovered a while back that Dusty's parents lived in the next street to us in
Wilbury road/avenue. I shall make a point of going there and wondered if anyone
knows the number? I will take the delectable Ms P for a phote shoot on the beach
where Dusty was and also to see her star at Brighton Marina. :star:

That's great Maggie, if a little vertigo inducing. :lol:

Good luck in your quest Lynn. [beg]

Hi Donella, many thanks for the addresses. I will definitely do Wilbury Villas and if
the weather is good Rottingdean also. There is always someone on here who can answer
any Dusty questions. x I am reading your article today, thanks for the large print

This perhaps is more appropriately called "The streets where she may have shopped" but if you've longed to immerse yourself in the London of Dusty's teenage years here's your chance. A new book documents London of the 1950's:

I must be on a roll - this just popped up when I was poking around Youtube, looking for something else completely. For those of you who want more than just static pictures I give you - video:

I just watched a new documentary called My Generation on Netflix, chronicling the cultural shift in Britain in the sixties (music, art, youth culture). Astounded (and annoyed) that they missed Dusty from this, but still interesting from the perspective of providing cultural context to Dusty's life in sixties London.
