Another of Elizabeth Weavers wonderful photos from 1950. This is Elizabeth as a child at 104 Victoria Street. She told me, “We lived in the house right next to the railway bridge. You’ll see the fields behind the house? We called that “the plots” – must have been allotments at one time, I think. Children played football and rounders there and you could walk over to Stonefield Rd through “the plots”. We had a big garden then but it was cut in half to build the new houses which are now there.”
