hi Bothamlad. Unbelievable. My Grannie and Grandad lived in that house. They moved to Botham Street from Deerlands Ave in the early 50s. I and my cousin, who used to live in Wensley Street prefabs, used to visit them all the time.  My Grannie passed in 1958. My Grandad passed in 1961.  There was a couple who used to lodge there. The house has long gone now, just waste land last time I saw.

Hi blackhill.Must have been 1959/60 when we moved in.I was only 4 yrs old then but i remember the old chap . Used to call him little grandad.I remember sitting and watching him make the fire up in the kitchen,he always had a sweet of some sorts for me. i believe his name was Fothergill.We lived there till 1973.

That was my grandad Joshua William Fothergill.  I am his grandson Edward. So the couple who lived there was your mom and dad. Didn't see much of them but they were very nice.  Can't remember them having a son. But obviously must have had. I think they lived in the front room, not sure.  Small world eh

Thats amazing blackhill.I can't really remember much else until i started school.I do remember he got caught in a snowfall off our roof when he was making a path for us all,i think my mum said he caught pneumonia after that. Mum and Dad always spoke of your Grandad when i was growing up.Certainly is a small world.
