    A rope for people to lean on !! ??? I find it incredible - I can't imagine how you could lean on a rope and fall asleep !! It's hard to imagine the sight of some poor unfortunates slumped over a rope - most uncomfortable I would think !!

    must be where that saying comes from about being so tired that you could sleep on a clothes line ! ha,ha.

    Seriously though, was this really a fact do you think ? Surely not ! ?

    Definitely a fact, Lindy.

    It was a rope to sleep against for people too poor to afford a bed.
    I suppose you were also supported by the person next to you.

    BTW, my Mum was a year older than your Gran.

    There were a number of lodging housing along St. Anne street which was once an affluent area of merchants houses until the courts of the inner city encrouched towards them, whereupon the wealthy fled to the southern suburbs. One of these was the Beresford Hotel. There is still a residence next door or next door but one to the new fire station and Queen Victoria and Albert once stayed there and because of this the owners were allowed to put a small bust of the pair either side of the doorway portico which are still there today.

    My mam and dad lived in Queen Anne Place before moving to Gerard Crescent in 1960. Some photos attached taken in the 1950's. Sorry the quality is not very good on some of them.
