The 'upside down' houses on Scholefield Lane and my late mum, Lollypop Lady Annie Turner at St. Catherines, think late 1980's.

Nice surprise seeing Annie on her perch Jean, brought back some happy memories of working at St Caths. Hoping you and Pauline are keeping well, not seen either of you for years.

I'm smashing Pauline. Just been looking at the other photos and having a good laugh about the comments, yes, she was a really wonderful character. I remember those pigeons too, it was quite funny really as there wouldn't be one pigeon around, but as soon as she went out to the front there would be loads of them swooping down as if appearing from nowhere. Great memories!

I lived in these 'houses' when I was about 8...I remember we had the living room upstairs, with a toilet and the main bedroom. Down the stairs you had a further two bedrooms with a kitchen and bathroom.
After watching the tele in the living room...I went downstairs for a wash and bed...weired!

I got lost when we first moved in and I told a woman my mum's door was red....they were all red! lol
