Downsview Estate - a Memory of Shrivenham.
I believe that the photo is taken looking towards Shrivenham coming up Station Road. The next turning on the right is Charlbury Road and we moved into no 24 around 1965 - perhaps a bit before. There was still lots of building going on and I can remember getting my wellington boot stuck in the mud and falling over - did I get it when I got home! I remember the Coventrys who drove a green Ford Consul and lived in Coventry Close. Chris and Barry Colman lived in Charlbury Road and their dad had a 2 tone Vauxhall Cresta. We had a grey Austin A35 van and I can remember cutting my knee on the exhaust pipe trying to retrieve my football. We lived next door to the Rumbolds who had a huge boat parked outside the window which went down well with my parents.
