The demolished building used to be the garage of Frank Cookson, corn merchants and the end of the terrace on the left is Eldon Mount.
I wish I'd known about this as l lost a couple of tennis balls on that roof back in the 50's!

Photos 3&4 are particularly poignant to me as l was brought up on the first street on the right where the white car is - Wells Mount! The bushes on the left of photo 4 are where we used to mess about pushing each other into. Behind them were growing rhubarb and mint which we used to pinch! Known to us as 'Florrie's mint' as it was owned by Florrie Bail.
