Young Boy In The Back Green At 38 Dumbiedykes Road c.1950


About this memory

Peter Bottomley, aged 3.

"Taken showing the layout of the washing greens and balconies. Steps led from the walkway down through the greens to the road below.

"Washing was always taken in at night, and never hung out if there was a wedding or funeral. The pushchair was probably used to transport the laundry from the local wash house." - Jean Bell (née Bottomley)
