I know where it is as I played around there often enough. It's just off Belvoir St . I had 2 friends who lived in houses around there and one who died unfortunately at 16 yrs old. Every time I see the back of the house further down I think of her.

We were all blessed with these lavatories, at the bottom of the back yard. Absolutely freezing in there, in winter, and more often than not, in winter, they were froze up too.

If you go on to Google Earth Street View, you can see that exact same view and all the houses are still there.

Yes that's right Eddie.... It was her grandparent's house. So very sad. We were in the same class at school. Now and again I come back here just to reminisce and it's like yesterday again.
