    Great pic's Colin,but I'm sure that was called Brunswick gardens,(going from the early 60's when I lived not far away) It must have been quite an affluent area,at one time! I think the original houses were Georgian,but no trace of it at all,now!!

    In the 1970s I can remember the director of housing donning a hard hat and driving a bulldozer to demolish a row of terraced houses that were perfectly servicable. The ones that really annoyed me were those on Mulgrave Street which were really well built.

    I drive down Mulgrave every day on the way home from work. There's about six houses left from the orginal street. Lovely, and as you say, well built houses.
