I get a bit hazy after this but remember the Seeneys at 14 and Kitty at 17. The Doyles and the Foxes lived on the main Highgate Rd just in front of us.

The whole lot was demolished around 1969 for an interstellar bypass.

It was a happy childhood for loads of kids on the bombsite in front of our houses. Always lots of kids to play with.
