Ken .Well over a hundred ,I worked on one as a lad. and that was 68 years ago during ww2.They looked older then than they do now.

They are probably over 100 years old. Our house, (in Abram), is 113 years old.

A lot of houses like those were cleared in the 1960's and 1970's for re-development. It just goes to show what can be done with a bit of TLC.

Fred only a few of E Pykes comments are ever about the photo shown most relate to something else or another photo from somewhere else. He likes flying off at a tangent
