Mrs. Ivy Thompson (nee Reynolds)

The Dwellings

My Mum, Ivy Thompson (nee Reynolds), was born in Ramsgate along with her older brother Steve and younger sister Alice.  My Nanny Reynolds came from Pitsea, Grandad from Ramsgate.  Not too sure how they met but married around 1917.

They stayed in Ramsgate several years until Grandad found work within Tilbury Dock then able  to live in the Dwellings for many years.  When leaving school Mum worked at a shop in Dock Rd. very close to them over the bridge.  Just before the war they moved  into Poynder Rd.

Actually I saw the Dwellings, which stayed empty for a long time,  not too sure when it was pulled down.

It has been so nice to read all of the memories people have written, feel sure upon leaving Dwellings many stayed in Tilbury.
