Memories Resident Family House

An only child - dad (Arthur) died in 1950. Mum & I there until I was married in 1960. Mum there till 1975. No car - we walked to school, guides at night. No worries. We knew we could go into anyone's house if we needed help. "Lav" down the back before sewer. Carried hot water from copper in "washhouse" to bathroom.
