This is wonderful, thank you so much for posting it. Ive been tracing the history of this litte row of houses for nearly a year now and so far this is the best picture that Ive come accross. If you dont mind me asking, which branch of the Halliwells' of Kay's do you belong to? Would love to chat with you about Kay's if you have any spare time to meet/email me.

I used to live in first house, (white wall)until age 5 with all my Halliwell family. Lovely community of people and many happy sunny days in the 70's summer sun. Bless you late uncle Cliff for these great photos.
