This is my father's Hillman convertible outside his house in Gidlow Avenue in c1967. The avenue is now full of cars and the cherry trees are much larger.

The red & white Standard Vanguard Van, behind the Hillman, belonged to my cousin, I used to drive it regularly.

What a lovely picture. I remember we used to live in a downstairs flat in a house on the corner leading down to Sacred Heart school. There used to be a little shop on the street too. I remember getting caught scrumpping for apples with my brothers in Gidlow Ave.Lots of happy memories from there.

That's Gidlow Avenue as I remember it in 1960's. The Cherry trees were much smaller then. I clearly remember the Dennis family, I think that may be young Keith in the passenger seat.
