this photo was in a house clearance in Ashton and seems such a shame to be thrown away, can anyone shed any light on it, looks like late '50's -early '60's

It's been 40 years or more since the last time I went through 'Squeeze belly' entry, past the cottages going to Heath Rd.... Is the entry still there and what is in place of the cottages and Scala?

Yes it is, and Thanyou, Eunice, for not destroying these photos.

Janet: some of the cottages are still there but the Scala has gone, there are apartments there now.

Thanks Kenee..... Hard to believe the cottages are still there... I was sure the Scala had to have gone.... Lord.. it was falling down when I used to go passed all those years ago.......Everywhere is so different from when I lived there... :-(
