After looking up his old patch, Kingsbury, someone who left the house 4 doors away from me in 1955 and then left the country found all my sites and pictures, and recognised his old road in my photos. Then I got an email he is coming back for the first time in 40 years and got a call today he's here. He arrived this evening and thanks to the internet I've now met someone who lived here before I was born. He turned out to be an accomplished psychic and we also had a lot of other things in common. My parents moved almost over the road from him in 1957 and I lived there till I was 5.
Here we are in my front room, Mike is on the right.
I also had a similar experience with a member here (forgot the name) who found my pictures of Henlys Corner on the North Circular, where he worked in the garage and met his wife in the 1940s and also left the country, also I think for Australia. Without the internet tracking down all our old friends and neighbours would have been almost impossible.
