I lived in Blackhill about 1953; lived in Laburnum Avenue. When we moved in I can remember the big coal fire, high mantlepeice, an outside toilet and tin bath. I had freinds in Court Street and Roger Street and went to St Marys, Blackhill. Most of the old shops have gone (most are now houses), the fish shop in Derwent Street opp Parkers grain merchant.
Some of us went out with the drivers delivering on farms. Rose and Crown gone, would sit on crown window before going 2 till 10 at Billet Mill great times had. To be continued.
