London Street directories 1960s
« on: Monday 27 November 17 21:35 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Does anyone here have access to 1960s London Street directories, or are they available digitally, or from ancestry or anything?

Cheers!

Are you being specific as to the part of London you wish to view?

eg http://maps.nls.uk/view/101455066 "West" London (although this one 20 years earlier )

Good question, Ray. Thanks!

Being frightfully specific, I'm looking for St. Mary's Terrace on Paddington Green. That's 'Little Venice' in W2.

That's the one!

What I'm looking for is a surname. Around 1964 Mike O'Neill, then of the pop group Nero and the Gladiators, was living at one of the addresses on St. Mary's Terrace. On the floor above was living a tuba player named Rodney, now deceased, and his mother, also deceased.

I'm keen to find out Rodney's surname as he's an early member of a band I'm writing a history of.

Hence why I was hoping a street directory might help!

The London electoral registers including Paddington North for 1963 which includes the flats on St Mary's Terrace are online at Ancestry.

Mike/Michael O'Neill isn't listed there but there are other possible addresses for people with the same name.

I've asked the question though on a closed Marylebone/Paddington fb group.

It looks as though Rodney's surname might be Slade?

I managed to copy a bit of info. before my comp had a problem...

" Nero And The Gladiators ... Nero (Mike O'Neill) had previously played keyboards as a member of The Cabin Boys, the ... He and bassist Rod 'Boots' Slade formed The Gladiators originally with Laurie Jay on ... singer and guitarist Dave Lowery made the crossover to the mainstream with their"

I had to close the tab but I'm sure if you 'google' part of the above it will bring up the page as I'm unable to open anymore tabs at the moment...sorry!
