Leslie HOLLOWAY 1904-1996 and Angela HOLLOWAY 1907- 2010
She writes: " My Aunt and Uncle Lived in a bungalow named 'Langtree' on the Locking Rd in Weston. From pre-war until about 1956 Leslie and his Father ran a printing business in premises behind the bungalow and Angela had a hairdressing business in the front part of the house. In wartime they had an evacuee, Stanley WARNER, who attended the Grammar School, did well in life and always kept in touch with the Holloways. The bungalow was demolished and a Church now exists on the site. In the 1939 register (Claude) Leslie HOLLOWAY is a master printer & ARP warden. Angela is listed (domestic duties) but there is no sign of her business. I would be pleased with any memories or information about the HOLLOWAYS or Stanley WARNER during the war years"
Just to start things off - The 1952 Kelly's Directory of Weston-super-Mare has the following entry.
Holloway Claude Leslie (Langtree)
Holloway Mrs. A. ladies' hairdresser (Langtree)
Holloway & Son, printers (Langtree)
It is likely that he came from either Barking Abbey School or Mitcham County School. Accounts of life at the Weston County School can be found in the book "A school in the Forties" by Alec Kingsmill, himself evacuated from Mitcham County School.
