Nice one Billy. I can see our house in Southbourne rd! Wobaston school is there as well.In `57 we bought a house in Taunton Ave. which backed on to the railway lines.At first the noise was horrendous,but after a few weeks we never heard a thing,and they used to roar past!Worst time was at night, if you couldn’t sleep you could hear the coal trains coming from as far away as Featherstone, 10 mph chug chug chug getting louder & louder till it passed,then it was clank clank clank as the wagons passed.That passed away an hour or so.
Whats the story of the lady in the lions cage then? I`ve still got Peaches Lions & Heroes,bit dog eared now though.
