The Pink House - Local Landmarks of Lewisham
My sister found this old article for me, about 'the pink house' on Lewisham Way. It is a local landmark and the subject of local tales from childhood.
This article is about a documentary made, telling the story of Brenton Sammuel Pink, a Jamaican born ex dustman and musician who painted his house in the 70's after a vision in a dream. He can still be seen sitting out on his pouch there, in a big straw hat [with real fruit on some say] during the summer months.
If anyone knows where i can see a copy of the documentary please let me know.
