  • I remember the Boore family. I think Barbara Boore was a friend of my sister Rita Oliver.

  • That photograph is very early 1950s , possibly even 1949 . The gardens are all freshly planted , with no privet hedges , which becam a feature of nearly every garden on the estate. I do remember the Semms twins , (Paul and Barry?) , they were one of three sets of twins in Caldwell Road c. 1950 , the other two being the Bowens , and the Ravening girls Pat and Pam who lived at number 25 or 27.

  • The Boore family were neighbour of ours. We lived at number 21 just along the street . Mrs. Boore looked after me when my Mum was working. Apart from John , she had a daughter Barbara. She had a large framed enfraving in her front-room , some classical scene with nude lady , which my Catholic Mum told me not to look at.

  • The photo of Caldwell Road there is a little black car parked at the side of the road.Both my brother and I believe it is our dad’s car . I remember him coming home with it for the first time, we all climbed in for a ride we were so excited, my brothers and I . This our first trip in a car. All the neighbours were out to see the excitement.We lived in number 20, the Simms family. Does anyone remember my family.

  • Not as far as I know, I’m afraid. My family comes from the northwest of England, and I added this page in my capacity as a volunteer for the Making Memories project. However, I’ve never researched my entire family history, so there’s always a possibility.
