Stuart , you can see kindness on their faces. Where was the house situated ?

Re.T Walsh....Not sure about house location. A previous reply mentioned Linney St. in connection with the Wroths.
That seems familiar...My dad told of going to Rachel's after school (for a sandwich & drink.),with brother Bob. (From Whelley Secondary School)
Said it was near St Catharines Church.
Probably was Linney St....?

It was Linney Street.corner of Neville Street & opposite Walter Darbyshire' grocer's shop
