1945/6 photo by H. Felton: number 65

2 storey plus attic property No. 65 was a saddlers and harness makers into the 1940s. By the time the photo was taken its neighbours at numbers 62-64 had been demolished.

There is a poster advertising a dance on Saturday March 3, which fits with the year being 1945, it was at something 'Mill' or 'Hill'.

Beverly, who lived at no. 65, writes (August 2011): ' I was born there in 1960 and we moved in 1968 when the building was demolished' and adds 'Apart from the boarding up over the shop front windows it is very much how I remember it.'
