that looks like the spare land of margaret street,the big building in background is t`hen ole.
I think the garages to the left of Kathleen's right shoulder belonged to Mr Boylan, coal dealer. And the far wall was the back of the old workhouse grounds and had a small "river" running at it's base.When I was a littleun this was the reputed haunt of the dreaded "Digglers". Rumour has it that developers want to pull down "Th'en ole" and build appartments etc.
Ahhh, i'm with you now - it's the "little park" area i used to go to as a kid!
We used to call it the 'back field'. Rememb er bein g dragged across it by my Dad every Saturday afternoon, when he went to put his bets on at Corcoran's bookies.
my children and their friends always called it the tyre park.
