Childhood - a Memory of Chandler's Ford.

My sister and I and our older brother, who did not survive, were born at 175 Hursley Road in the 1940s. The house is still standing and is now owned by Draper's Tools. We drove by on a cold, damp late October day in 2008 and took some pictures. We were disappointed to see that our beloved garden, so carefully tended by our parents, is now the parking lot! Perhaps the next time we will plan to see the changes that have taken place inside. My sister is now in Devon. I am in the US, in South Carolina.
