Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 11th October, 2020)
Well, its not the most cheerful photo I have seen on PAD but I suppose its topical. Best thing is that attractive house in the background house, I like that !
The house looks very well maintained, built for families in a those days, it looks double the size of ordinary terraced houses.
The building was the Shevy post office, the left side was the post mistress home and the right window was the post office.
The last post mistress to live there was Gladys Armstrong, and when she moved out about 20 years ago to retire the developers found that it only had cold running water.
On the 1st of September 1947 I was born in the next cottage down Church lane in what was the old Shevy blacksmiths stables.
Will all these signs be taken down ? , when all this is over , or will they just be left making the place an eyesore.
There's to many signs on our road networks, you have to keep your eyes on the road these days, not looking around reading signs.
That 'nice' house has been crashed into more times than soft Mick. It's a wonder no-one has been killed yet. It's a liability.
James, i lived in Shevington from 1969 to 2000 and i can't ever remember it being 'crashed into'.
How can a house be a liability???. unless you months behind with the mortgage.
I've seen three myself, and I don't live there.
It can't be the fault of the house anyway! Perhaps the railings should be extended. Where I live part of a row of beautiful older semis were demolished for the sake of a road. People's lives uprooted for the sake of roads and more and more traffic.... !
Good heavens Roy , what possessed a noble born Standisher to descend the perilous steep ?
I got married Dave, wife knew best !!!!
