My sister and I were born in the house in the centre of the picture (with the lean-to kitchen) - 11, Aberford Road. 1942 was the year of my birth and I have many happy memories of living there for the first 13 years of my life. The shed/outbuilding in the front of the house was not there during our time.

I use to live opposite the Old Masons on Fleet Lane, you can easily still see these buildings today, although the pub is not the one that is seen in the picture, opposite the pub is Fleet Lane with a war memorial, there is also a Total Garage there now and Aberford Road is a very busy road now. I use to know a lad that lived in this pub whilst I attended Oulton Junior school in the middle 80's he was ginger from scotland, into rugby cant think whatever happened to him, maybe he wasnt from scotland maybe he moved there. To the right of the pub is quarry hill and there use to be a cottage here that had a hugh picture of a hunting scene on the side. Does anyone know if that house is still there. This particular area of Oulton has seen many changes, I think the houses beyond the men with the bike use to sell furntiture. In fact does anyone remember the pink panther and pink elephants that use to wave at traffic here to advertise the shop, also I think the furniture shop use to be a grandways a now non existant food chain.

Before it was a furniture shop, it was Volter's Chemist, owned by Paul John Volter and he and his wife worked there. Grandways was the first "supermarket" in the area when it opened.
