Brian Frampton's Memories

Brian Frampton’s Memories

We have another oral history to share with you as Brian Frampton recalls growing up in Walworth in the 50s (and his memories of Baldwins too, of course!). A great listen. Thank you to Brian Frampton and interviewer Kitty Corish for a lovely interview.

The Roots was a Southwark Pensioners Centre project, run in partnership with Julia Honess and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, about the story of Walworth Road-based G. Baldwin and Co. Working with volunteers from the local community, the project tells the story of Walworth Road based G. Baldwin & Co, one of the oldest and most established herbalists in London, and the many customers who have frequented the shop over its long history.
