This month we see Green St. looking towards Rampton End, probably about 1950. The building furthest away is, more recently, “Rainbow Crafts” but the building on the left was the home of Dennis Jeeps who was responsible for archiving most of the photos we have in the collection today. His house was demolished for new development a few years ago. The story I heard is that the flags are actual Royal Navy signal flags that were “obtained” by a sailor when de-mobbed after World War II. How they came into Dennis’ possession I do not know but he used to display them for special occasions. Does anyone know their whereabouts now?
