Hi Young

Would your older sister Glennis be about 66 now? if so ask her if she remembers Phil, Anne's brother from Francis Street.

Hi Phil
Yes she would have been but sadly she passed away 3 years ago in her sleep.

Regards Kevin

I'm very sad to hear that, as she went to school with my sister and then later she and I dated for a while. I lived in Francis Street at the time so it was before 1964 when we moved Inkerman Street, but by then she wasn't about so I assumed she had moved.

I was born in Inkerman street in 1957. Does anyone remember the Edwards family in the street at that time? My mum was Dora and Dad was George (ex navy), I think he worked for the gas works? My sisters are Janice, Carole and Jacqueline (Jacky)

Hello All
Trying to find Gail Jones. Use to live at 170 Inkerman Street. Late 60's early 70's. Met her many, many years ago while on holiday in Great Yarmouth, 1968 or 69. We both would've been about 14 then. We became pen friends, as I lived in London. I joined the Army in 1970 and by the time I started writing to her again, it would've been late 1971.
Reading through this , i can see everyone was moved out in 1970. This could be the reason that we lost contact. Any information would be greatfully received, as it would be nice to hear from her again to see how life as turned out for Gail.
Thank you.

Hi Irean I thought I was right with Rennie's name. Yes ive fond memories. It's a shame kids to day can't play out for hours like we did then and be safe and yes we all had a cooked meal of some think and considering we didn't have bathrooms kept clean with the tin bath in front of the coal fire when cold.Carole
