So long, Patsy Kelly & Reg Fuller

This wreath appeared at the top of Brick Lane recently to commemorate the life of Ada Patsy Kelly (maiden name, Fuller) who for many years worked on the Sunday fruit and vegetable stall at this site. She died at the venerable age of ninety four. You will be pleased  to know that the stall is continued by her younger brother Reg Fuller (below) and I hope to see him there for many years to come.


A year later, I regret to report that Reg is gone too and now there will always be a space at the top of Brick Lane where they used to be. (updated 13th November 2010)

    What a beautiful thing to do. Long live the memories of Patsy & Reggie.
    So nice to know such human spirit still exists.

    My mother had a stall in Brick Lane during WW11 to supplement my dad’s army pay. When I returned from evacuation I helped at the stall which was opposite the Fuller’s green grocery stall they were true East Enders; Pat was lovely, but we lost contact as dad made mum give up the stall when he was demobbed.
