Hope these are of some interest from "Britain From Above" web site showing images from 1933 of the Triangle estate under construction

If you scroll below the map there are links to further aerial photos of the estate under construction.

 

I was told that originally it used to be a golf course or a dump for 'slag'  from one of the steel works, perhaps others could clarify

this is a bit further back that request, but good to be able to look around the place: (both links set to 1900 ish)

I did not live on the Triangle Estate, nearest location for me was the White Rose

 

But I remember a guy and his wife who lived on the Triangle and both worked at Steaddfast Tools Ltd on Manor Lane, end of Cricket Inn Road - I worked there 1959 to Feb 1963

 

The guy was older than myself, did not have a driving license and about 20 years older than myself. I am now 79 so he and his wife are probably dead now, unless he is Peter Pan. hey had a son but no idea of his name

 

The people were called Lawrence (known as Tober, or Tauber at work) Jepson and he was foreman in the grinding department. His wife worked in the wages office. I think he was quite a cricket fan, but not sure if, or where, he ever played the game

 

Wonder if anyone on this thread knew them

The Groobeys lived at number 1 Larch Hill, they had a son, Gordon (Dennis to his family). They bought the house new and lived there until the late 70's.
