Childhood Memories. - a Memory of Naburn.

I grew up in the house at the end of the street which was called Cherry Cottage.I would be about 3 or 4 when the picture was taken. My mum had the large Yew tree on the right of the house front sawn down as it made the house dark. My dad's wooden grocers shop cum Post Office (which resembled a scout hut) was tucked in the front garden of the last house on the bottom right. Wisteria cottage. So he hadn't got far to walk to work. This scenic view and others of Naburn by Friths including Naburn Hall, St Matthews Church and Naburn Locks were on sale in the shop and sold well in the summer when visiting scout troops camped in Naburn Hall grounds courtesy of Commander Palmes. No internet or mobile phones in those days so the Scouts wrote home to their mums on Friths picture postcards.
