My Aunty and Uncle used to live in Wensley Street. Top left hand corner I think. Used to go there often when I was younger.

Had some really good memories of Wensley street prefabs back in the late 60s. There was a bunch of us from grimesthorpe school,we used to head up there in the evenings ,meet up with a couple of lasses who used to live there,Lynn and her mate.What a friendly area that used to be. How times change.

I used to deliver papers in the early/mid 60s for Revills at Firth Park. The Wensley Estate was on one of their rounds.

It's quite possible Gaz. Most of Revills rounds were on the Brushes estate so I also did The Oval, Horninglow, Stubbin etc. The Page Hall round, (Firth Park Rd, Firth Park Ave, Hinde House Lane, Wensley estate and then down to Page Hall terraces) was a bit of an oddity, but was probably because Revills lived down there. It was a long drag but we got 2d to catch the bus back.

I can't actually remember crossing paths with any other paperboys, but I used to bump into a papergirl whose round came down Windmill and onto Hinde House. We used to pop into the allotments to errrr... get to know each other.
