Back Street Kids!


Back Street Kids!
This photo from Ian Turner's collection dates from 1949 or 1950 and portrays some of the children who lived in houses on the lower section of Cambridge and Windsor Streets and some from Church Street. Back Alleys were favourite (and safe) places for children to play in the 1950s. They were not out of earshot of their parents and all the neighbours knew each other.

I can recognize Annette Turner and Rosemary Marshall, who were my age, and Ian Turner in the middle. The younger ones I am not sure about. There was a boy called Tony Durbin who lived down that way at this time and his family moved away shortly after this. I am not sure if he is the boy in the back row.
