Recorded before the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II this film is about Tremendous Planet Tooting as it’s known, which has so much interesting history and culture and is full of cool shops, restaurants and markets.
The Castle Pub Tooting where Motorhead played with Girlschool amongst many other like Status Quo. Buy gigantic snails in Tooting Market where there’s also an array of all sorts of international food and bars.
Flower Power to the people! Everyone remembers Citizen Smith outside Tooting Broadway Station but did you know about the Daffodil King, Peter Barr? Or the youngest soldier in World War , aged twelve?!
What about the Wimpy where Marc Bolan flipped burgers or Mary Millington’s sex emporium?
Mixed Blessings bakery where Bob Marley wrote his name on the wall and numerous reggae artists recorded music on Mitcham Road.
The chapel where Daniel Defoe hid out and the cemetery where Charlie Chaplin’s dad was buried in an ummarked grave.
Also the Dr Hunter who kept all sorts of specimens of people like the Irish giant Charles Byrne.
Plus amazing food, Mangoes and Pooja brilliant confectionary and samosas!
Long live the king!
