This is a photo taken for what appears to be Bonfire night November 5th 1946/7?
Were winters warmer then? we are all wearing summer clothes.
The group are sitting in the dirt of Village Drive, outside Mr and Mrs Bob Jennings Bungalow and my Grans house is the next one down, just seen in photo.
On the opposite side of the road lived Mr and Mrs Nevin and family. They ran a few chickens in the garden plus a Rhode Island Red cockerel which was very bad tempered. If it got out of the garden and any children were walking along the path it would fly up and give a nasty peck or two on the backside, adults got pecked on the backs of their legs.
Cooks Farm was at the bottom of the road and opposite ‘Alexandra Villas’ where Gran lived was a big field where we all played, there were chicken coops placed in the field too but I can’t remember who owned them.
Do you see yourself in the photo, if you do what are your memories of the day?
