Anyone come from Grimesthorpe? (part3)

Recommended Posts

Hello Fleetwood and Gaz. I've been talking to Sheila (rf2690) and we both remember a lady who lived in that yard. She wasn't very big but walked a huge great dane. The dog carried her shopping basket in its mouth. This must have been the mid fifties when we attended Grimesthoroe School.

 

Hi cat631 - Don't recall the lady, I do remember a boy who lived in a yard or so further down, a terrible accident killed his younger sister trying out her new bike, this happened in town around Ladysbridge area, all anybody could say at the time was how and why? It was a great loss to the family. fleetwood

Sad to hear how the place has ended up .It was always Industrial but a good community.

Yes its sad to say that Grimesthorpe and page Hall have fell into disrepair yet Attercliffe rose from the ashes and was totally redeveloped I wonder why they never built houses on the slum clearance side of Grimesthorpe yet they build on places that get flooded like catcliffe ah well the powers that be :loopy:

We recently mentioned a lady with a great dane. Beezerboy has sent this photo taken near The Who Can Tell on Ruthin Street. Although not very clear, behind the lady and child can be seen someone walking a big dog that could be the same great dane.

Seems to me that, seriously, one could easily see a Great Dane with a shopping basket in it's mouth as mentioned in your previous post! The dog's ears are right and something is partially covering it's face.

Thanks CAT631, I couldn't get a transfer of the photo from Photobucket so had to take a pic and hope someone could help. At a guess I think the photo was probably taken at a Whit weekend around 1949 the little girl tells me. Thanks once again.
