Flower sent me some of her memories a few days a go including tales of wartime pig bins in the passage. I've asked her if she'd be interested in writing them and I see you've now echoed that Liz. So, if we keep our fingers crossed!
I was born in Beresford Road and might even be in the photo though I would have been very small. I can remember being in the street with crowds of people all cheering and waving flags. We knew all our neighbours in those days. Doors were often left unlocked or keys tied to a piece of string inside the letter box. Note that there are few men in the picture. Some had not yet returned from the war. Some never returned at all. I remember quite a few families with a mother but no father.
