The front door had a round stained glass window which I thought was very posh. Half way up the side wall was a small hatch door which revealed the coal shute where the coal men emptied their sacks down into a small cellar under the stairs. My uncle Harry later took on the hard task to clear it all out to create a much needed "glory hole". He also modernised the kitchen and installed French windows in the living room at the back of the house.
The side trellis gate was later taken down and a driveway created to take my uncle's car. The former hen house at the back then became the garage.
The front garden was the setting for many a family photograph down the years. Here are my Mum and Dad after their wedding, with Mum in her going away outfit, with her parents on the left and Dad's parents on the right. This is the only photograph I have of my paternal grandfather.
