Reminds me of our old house in Francis Street, Higher Ince.
They weren't good old days for me either. When the council rehoused us it was like stepping into another, better world. Our 'new' house in Meadway was fantastic!

What a great picture though the dog dont seem too impressed with his new accomodation, bet your bot was freezing on that stone floor. My dad had a dog called paddy when he was young too
