Great Granny’s house at Stockbridge

1941
Great Granny's house at Stockbridge

About this memory

I love this picture of my Great Granny with my Dad. They are standing outside her Stockbridge upper colony house at Reid Terrace. There was a bench on the landing outside the door that Dad is standing on. All the neighbours had them so they could sit out and talk to each other. Dad says there was also an amazing pull-down staircase in the middle of the hall ceiling that gave you access to rooms in the attic.
