About this memory

1950 – before the tenements were later demolished in 1962.

Number 33 was the tenement stair to my house.

The asterix * is where there was a grocers shop, located there in the 1930s.
The door to it sat back and there were 3 steps up to the door. But it was part of Christine Robertson’s house but they never used that door, they entered from 33 stair, which was the first landing on the right.

The Broad Stairs was a long set of “Broad Stairs” linking Dean Path down to Damside.

No 35 -The newspaper shop belonged to Christine Robertson, which was very near my stair. I have faded memories of going into the shop and there was a door bell that jingled when you went in. When I was aged 13, I delivered the “Evening News” paper to houses around the Village for her.

No 36 was a main door and Mrs Heseltine lived there.

No 37 was a stair.
The names of the families that lived here, are listed further on Page 6 — the year is 1962.
