I lived on the White City Estate from 1948 until 1969 and my parents were there until they passed on.I am so very proud to say that I lived there too.I truly believe that it was a very nice place to live and I fondly recall a very happy childhood among so many friends.The schools were on the doorstep and the teachers were excellent.We spent many many happy hours in the Bloemfontein Road open air pool and the estate was our "Adventure Playground"I could go on and on ....suffice to say all the White City folk of my generation speak of it fondly.

I was born on The White City Estate in March 1948 and lived there for 21 years.I still return often to see friends that I grew up with there.These photos are such a good memory jogger for me and they make me feel so nostalgic about my time there.I can see "The Bushes" as they were known to us kids.These were the shrubs and bushes that ran alongside the Westway on the estate side of that road,the main bushes being directly opposite Creighton Close at the junction between Bloemfontein Road and Westway.We would spend many hours of fun playing among "The Bushes".I remember all of the allotments ,a site that was to be used for the construction of Christopher Wren and Hammersmith County Schools ,my secondary school was to be the Wren when I reached the age of 11.
