    IF IT WASN'T FOR THE 'OUSES IN BETWEEN
    (Edgar Bateman / George LeBrunn)

    Gus Elen - 1899


    If you saw my little backyard
    "Wot a pretty spot", you'd cry
    It's a picture on a sunny summer day
    Wiv the turnip tops and cabbages
    Wot people doesn't buy
    I makes it on a Sunday look all gay

    The neighbours finks I grow 'em,
    And you'd fancy you're in Kent
    Or at Epsom if you gaze into the mews
    It's a wonder as the landlord
    Doesn't want to raise the rent
    Because we have such nobby distant views

    Oh! it really is a wery pretty garden
    And Chingford to the Eastward could be seen
    Wiv a ladder and some glasses
    You could see to 'Ackney Marshes
    If it wasn't for the 'ouses in between

    We're as countrified as can be
    Wiv a clothes prop for a tree
    The tub-stool makes a rustic little stile
    Ev'ry time the blooming clock strikes
    There's a cuckoo sings to me
    And I've painted up "To Leather Lane A Mile"

    Wiv tomatoes and wiv radishes
    Wot 'adn't any sale
    The backyard looks a purfick mass o' bloom
    And I've made a little beehive
    Wiv some beetles in a pail
    And a pitchfork wiv the 'andle of a broom

    Oh! it really is a wery pretty garden
    And Rye 'Ouse from the cock-loft could be seen
    Where the chickweed man undresses
    To bathe 'mong the water cresses
    If it wasn't for the 'ouses in between

    There's the bunny shares his egg box
    Wiv the cross-eyed cock and hen
    Though they 'as got the pip and him the 'morf
    In a dog's 'ouse on the line-post
    There was pigeons, nine or ten
    Till someone took a brick and knocked it off

    The dust cart though it seldom comes
    Is just like 'Arvest 'Ome
    And we made to rig a dairy up some'ow
    Put the donkey in the wash'ouse
    Wiv some imitation 'orns,
    For we're teaching im to moo just like a kah

    Oh! it really is a wery pretty garden
    And 'Endon to the westward could be seen
    And by clinging to the chimbley
    You could see across to Wembley
    If it wasn't for the 'ouses in between

    Though the gasworks is at Woolwich
    They improve the rural scene
    For mountains they would very nicely pass
    There's the mushrooms in the dust-hole
    With the cowumbers so green
    It only wants a bit 'o 'ot 'ouse glass

    I wears this milkman's nightshirt
    And I sits outside all day
    Like the ploughboy cove what's mizzled o'er the Lea
    And when I goes indoors at night
    They dunno what I say
    'Cause my language gets as yokel as can be

    Oh! it really is a wery pretty garden
    And soapworks from the 'ousetops could be seen
    If I got a rope and pulley
    I'd enjoy the breeze more fully
    If it wasn't for the 'ouses in between

    Jacky I have plenty of pics of the waterfront, but when I took that, I wanted to include the foreground of the spikes which are around the tower and show the river as water dividing Birkenhead and Liverpool. Here are a couple taken the same day.

    18TH OCTOBER. Couldn't work out which was the best or worst. It was just a point and shoot opportunity as I was at the lights.

    I agree, Ged. Fabulous photograph. Colors and lights are brilliant and there's a sense of movement with the arrow and the traffic about to start up again. This could be entered in a photograph contest. Bravo.

    Yes fine photo, Joe. Though the dilapidated look of the building with the missing letters which I would guess used to spell "Kirkby Swimming Pool" is anything other than "Nice" as stated on the construction hoarding.

    Oh how beautiful, and how familiar. When I lived in Treborth Street I went to the park most days. As it was literally round the corner we treated it as our garden!! Walked through Princess Park and Sefton Park. Actually, the other house I grew up in was only ten minutes or less further away!!!!!

    And now I live round the corner from Central Park, it is my destiny!!
    Earth is the insane asylum for the universe.
