Re: I think these may be those properties
Stan, your sister was right, in the late forties / early fifties that area was an overgrown area of land with a couple of garages bordering onto Quarry Road. The area was known as "the shelters" we assumed the name related to wartime shelters but there was no evidence of any recent ground disturbance, perhaps shelters related to earlier buildings, perhaps as shown on the map.
Later the ground was cleared and new buildings built on the area between Quarry Road and Leslie Avenue facing Victoria Road.
