This one is for you Susan A. My brother George in between Brent and Kevin Atherton. Looks like the back garden of their house in Hawthorn Ave.

Including an old Anderson air raid shelter made into a shed. E.T.

Great picture John. Yes it is taken in the back garden at number 13. The shed/shelter was in the garden behind us. Trying to work out their ages makes me think this may have been around 1961/62. What a set of posers I bet their hands needed a good wash and thats why they're hiding them lol!! Love it.

I think this was taken some time in the late fifties

Susan, our George looks to be about 11 years old which would make it about 1959. But I could be wrong.

This is what makes it difficult to date John, we remember them like that and to us they haven't changed, so don't age - we wish haha. A great photo whenever it was taken.
