    Sparkhill

    Hi if my memory serves me well it was the Anderton Family. Quite a posh house and one of the few houses that had a telephone. Mr and Mrs Anderton had a daughter and son but I can't remember there names. But that could have been no.25. Are you related to Marlon who lived at no. 27?
