Its been a long time but I'm pretty sure that was one of many air raid shelters we slept in when on run-away from Fullwood Homes they made good digs and every now and then we found old food still in there:gag::gag:

Mrs Killalee at the first house on the left had a small shop.She would let us use our sweet coupons a month in advance. There was also a small shop in Anlaby street run by a man with one arm Mr Farnsworth,He also let you use your next months coupons in advance.

I loved going to Mrs Killilees. I was born in 1951 and lived in Fawley Road. The good old days! Does anyone remember the man with the horse and cart selling fruit and veg? We used to hitch a ride up the street on the cart. Remembering Margery Oldfield who ran the post office at the end of Fawley road as well.
