I have been asked to post a picture of our house as it used to be, which I am pleased to do as a way of preserving the grubby postcard which used to sit over our stove and so is covered with the grease of ages. Our house is on the left. Its top floor was apparently blown off in the second world war. The man sitting on the left hand shop front and made out of bits of exhaust pipe advertised the fact that there was an exhaust pipe garage at the back of our house. You drove through the middle:-
The picture was taken by our former next door neighbours in May 1998. It’s their scooters parked outside.
