Perhaps A Year Or Two Early - a Memory of Timperley.

I'm not absolutely sure the garden was as spick and span as this at the turn of the sixties, but it wasn't that long before it became this way. It had been a ruin until the early fifties when a brutalist electricity sub station wth a sort of covered verandah in front went up, and an official path cut off the corner pavement, so we didnt have to take a short cut over the wall to get into the then unwidened Moss Lane from Park Road. The owners of the gable-ended house the photographer has to deal with were named Williams. I don't remember this postcard ever being on sale in the Park Road shops along by the station - or anywhere else in Timperley for that matter. This is the first time I've seen it. Perhaps you could get it in Brooklands. Earlier (and unavailable) Frith postcards show, from the opposite side of Park Road across from Moss Lane mature and very shady street trees close to this junction on the south side of Park Road just as high as the trees along towards the bottom of the station rise visible in the distance here, though it's hard to tell whether Park Road had originally been, here at least, a proper avenue. Is the removal van parked on the north side outside what may be Dr da Cunha's house moving him out or his successor in?
