I was born in 1951 in Francis Street, Norman . Just under the bridge at the top of Belle Green Lane. It used to be known as "Irish Town" The houses were falling to bits. No hot water, no proper toilets, gas lighting. It was horrible! Mind you the folk were great and everyone stuck together and made the best of it.
