Absolutely lovely photos thanks for many memories.  Hope more people come out with old photos.  Pity I destroyed many after my marriage what they call de cluttering.  I had many of my time in opera society also carnival time.  I do hope to come down one time soon to meet up with you.

Lovely pictures, Barry. Third pic down, Wiseman's, Weedon's & Howard's (Westwood's?) were our closest shops as we lived in Kings Road.

Right in the corner of Howard's we'd take the short cut through to the petrol station on the way home from school (don't think it saved much time, but it made a change, we were easily pleased :)
