Not a lot of traffic about Allan
thanks for that one Allan. great picture
What a surprise to see this photo because of the name Moor Lane, my Grandparents always called it by that name, I was born in the next to the end house in the photo 434 Downall Green Rd in 1942,and the name was dying out even then,but I am sure it would have been a Moor before that, Many thanks for the photo
Sorry forgot to add the turn off to the right is Boothsbrow Rd the Co-op was always on the corner,the turn off further down is where you go to Dellside close,after allthe houses that you can see is a brow that went down to the village green.
Unlike the rubbish houses that are built today, that will be falling down slums in less than 50 yrs. These houses, well over a 100yrs old are still going strong..
Very interesting photo allan thanks, does anyone know when they built the council houses opposite.
Funny but I was just talking to someone today about those houses he said his parents were hopeing to get one when they married in the 1930's but ended up on the Cansfield Grove estate which were built around the same time.
Can't just remember you Irene have you a brother Tom are did Tom live next door,
Peter P-----r hope you see this photo your house was the last one on the left(there not built yet)before we moved to Downall Green estate
