View of Hawkhill Drive looking in the direction of Brian Crescent from the driveway of number 15 Hawkhill Drive. This was before the trees were planted in the 1970s. Behind the camera Hawkhill Drive meets Sandway and Hawkhill Gardens.

|||Hawkhill Drive, VE celebration (Cross Gates) (6 comments)
|9th May 1945
Image shows a street party in Cross Gates to celebrate VE day. A stamp on the photograph in the right hand corner reads 'VE Day+1. MAY 9th 1945. HAWKHILL DRIVE'. It is worth to noting that the crowd standing round the table are mostly female. The male residents would have been serving in the armed forces.
