I used to stay with an aunt on Don place,Doris Thew was her name and my cousins were Rita,Janet and Eric,my gran Lived at 88 Paget st,I spent a lot of time on the rec.We went to the skating rink three times a week,how can anyone forget the milkshakes at Brompton rd cafe,the bus terminus was there for the no5 bus to take us back to Southey.I used to go out with a girl of titterton st called Josie,all my clothes came from the cliffe especially my Whit suit from burgesses.I have a George Cunningham print of the cliffe and it brings back a lot of very happy memories.

As you all come from Attercliffe, does anyone know where Swallow Place was. My grandma lived there for a while in 1891. I think it has long gone now.

Hello Shem, my mum and uncle often talked about playing with a Donald and Rita Shemeld. They lived in the 'ten houses' at the bottom of Clay Street. Their names were Brian and Lily Wentworth. Are you the same Rita?
