Thats a very interesting shot for me as it shows our family home in Robin Hood Lane where my father was born in 1932 and his (much) older siblings before him. Three generations lived on the same plot.

Even I can remember living in the same house in the 70's before its sale and the corner shown when it was still a small T Junction with a big tree next to the pub and the original garage being on the land behind the current one.

My father sadly died of an illness but Im going to see my uncle and another aunt next weeked, so Ill see if they have any further pictures of the village.
