Re: A brush with the past
Yes, I remember all those in the photo (early1950s) which makes me think that the photo I put up above may have been taken in the late 1940s and not the early 1950s like I thought. I remember that the first photos being taken in those days were by a pro photographer who was courting the daughter of Mrs Molleneux? who may have been living next door to the Salmons. Most of the early photos were taken in Arthur Street back lane where a white sheet was often pinned to the wall. The photographer was the first person (post war) to bring a motorcar into Arthur Street.
Barry, using a bit of detective work, I note the photo you have put up was taken on the odd numbers side of Arthur Street. Why? Because if you look at the brick course at the bottom of the wall to the right, you will see that it tapers into the pavement from right to left. Arthur Street was on a natural slope towards the river so we are looking down the street. Odd numbers were on the left. How observant is that? I can hear someone say.
June and Brenda lived at No.38 but all the rest lived on the other side in the odd numbered houses.
