Notes / History Local youngsters assembled for the Carshalton Youth Club Dance,
British Legion Hall,
Newminster Road, Morden.

For many youngsters, a visit to a live concert, or a dance event provided the opportunity to mix informally with people of their own age.

It is Important to remember that teenagers did not really frequent pubs during this period and it was certainly frowned on for young, lone females to visit such establishments!
