The old electricity building
I went to Davigdor School while it was still there and indeed my brother did too. The ‘big girls’ were still there when I started, but moved out during my years. We then were allowed into the ‘top playground’. I remember the old electricity building had the air raid siren on top. Even though I was born in the early 1970s it was still there until they pulled the building down. Inside the building was a gantry type crane which they removed when the rest of the building came down.
A missed opportunity
I had the chance to recover the ‘Davigdor’ of the Davigdor Road sign which was a large ceramic tile, but I didn’t take it from the rubble, which I sort of regret. Also in my life time there was still the entrance to the coal yard between the road up to the bridge and the electricity building. The last part of the old church, where I went to nursery school, is the gate post at the southern end of the block of flats. The last time I was there the site of the old school still had not been redeveloped.
Do you remember?
