Beginning at Salisbury Avenue, a bungalow then coal yard, a bungalow, Peperells House, the front two rooms were the paper shop and sweet shop before they transferred over the road. The Government built a temporary bath house of six bathrooms in the space just before Osborne Road. These were well used providing our own soap, towel and a supervisor checked the right amount of water was used! Next was a small Co-op shop then Cottis, a few small shops, one a fish shop whose wife Mrs Williams gave music lessons. Another coal yard, a few shops and houses followed by Elseys Cox sweet shop, a hall then a butchers, houses, a private nursing home, a school, Mr Paveys house and J P house.
