East Thomas Street

Thank you to Richard Middlemiss for sending me this photograph taken in the back green of No 19 East Thomas Street.

Richard writes:

"My Grandparents, James and Mary Kelly lived at 19 East Thomas Street from approx. 1914 to 1955. They had 4 children Robert, William, Alice and Mary.

Robert's son, Bertie, lived in the same house for a short while after 1955. 

The house was on the top flat and I can remember the toilets being on the landing between the flats.  One of the neighbours was a Mrs. Simpson."

Here is another photograph taken in the same back green:
