    A pity St. martins cottages couldn't have been saved,in some way,as it was the oldest municipal housing in the country!

    Dunno if it was true? but my sister said when you looked out her living room window(back of the flat) you would see where the beatles had their jam sessions when they first got together.
    This was either a bus shelter(depot) or large Engineers workshop? only a map of the time will I be able to give precise details and roads it was on because I was a nipper back then.

    I bet you've seen all those great old photos that Lee Jones have Jacky. The old barefoot street urchins, the kids carrying jugs of ale back from the pubs for their dads, captured on camera in the 1800s and partially helped create the Temperance movement towards coca rooms. The black lad seen at the Steble fountain on that often published photograph was from Eldon Place and went on to tour the world with an orchestra/troup.
