I hope you are well. I read the board everyday but haven't posted for a while. When I was back in UK, I of course did a tour around looking at where we used to live. 10 Surrey Road as a newborn, Upstairs flat, but when I went it looked like a house, a neighbour kindly filled me in on the layout. Mam said she was always on edge with us making lots of noise and an older lady downstairs. We then went to 26 Kelly Road, a new council house, and I remember Mam saying she ‘bought a key”. What was this about? I remember kelly road but not surrey road, we left 26 Kelly Road in 1965 to try NZ, Dad was a welder in shipyards and work wasn't consistent apparently.
When I did a drive by of 26 Kelly Road, I wasn't sure if I had the right house, it looked different, we had wood panelling between lower and upper front window but I couldn't see any like that. Seemed to be a convoluted maze of streets and back lanes. I cant remember it being like that. Mind you I was only 4.
If anyone can fill me in on some knowledge around anything it would be greatly appreciated. I have an old photo of 26 Kelly Road somewhere, i must find it for my next visit.
