Notes / History This picture shows some of those enjoying a New Year Dance at Merton Public Hall, Kingston Road.

Rock and Roll only came to the more during the mid 1950s and young people were still dancing to big band music, swing and popular show tunes. Dance events such as this often featured a live band, together with a compere and/or singer.
