Ganton View, looking south-west
1970. Looking south-west along Ganton View. In the centre a break in the terrace at the corner of the street makes way for railings above a stone retaining wall which separates the road from Johnston Street below. On the left are no.54 and 52 Ganton View, with nos.50 and 48 following on around the corner; no.51 is on the right

My family lived in 51 Ganton View from December 1959 until 1977 when my Aunt took over tenancy of 61. My mother died in 51 in February 1976 I had left home in December 1971 and my father lived there until he moved out in 1977. These houses were back to back and next to 53 was our joint yard which contained our bins and a toilet which 51 and 53 shared. There were rows of two ad four terraced houses and two houses had to share a yard. in the late 60's early 70's the houses were 'improved' by installing a bathroom in a small bedroom and replacing the skylight with a dormer in the attic. The basements had a cellar and a coal cellar with a grating on the outside wall level with the path. Prior to improvements the bath was i the kitchen and had a board over it for use as a preparation surface
