This is a great shot, taken from the corner of Thicknesse Ave and Netherby Rd looking towards Guilford Cres and Wellfield Rd. I used to walk this way every morning on my way to Beech Hill school.

I lived at 22 fir grove and walked to school this way before the war and during it, and got off the bus when coming home from the grammar school throughout the forties. Wonderful memories.
