80 Croydon Road Annex

Passing 80 Croydon Road yesterday I saw this. The house had been boarded up for some time and a workman there told me that it had been empty for twelve years. Once cleared, the site will be used for flats. The second picture shows the basement where we had history of art classes with George Fry and Fred Packer and occasionally Mrs Cole. But I remember that room mainly for the film society organised by George Fry. And that was where receptive minds were opened up to the incredible vistas of world cinema.
