August 2019

This is one of the few photos that shows my own house on the High St.! The date would be early 1950s and the most striking thing about the picture is the mass of greenhouses and outbuildings and the back of the houses. With the exception of the (now) auction sale room at the top left, all these are now gone. If you look carefully between the trees in the middle you may see a figure in white. Yes – there was a tennis court in the garden. The trees are much bigger of course but the shape of the court is still very visible today.
