Hi Walker
Is your name Eddie? If so,do you remember the Thurbin family at No.33? I'm Pauline, my Mum & Dad's names were Dick & Ginny & my sister & brother's names were Rene & Dick. I think your Mum's name was Rose. I found this site after watching Blitz Street & tried to find mention of the rocket that dropped on Nettlefold & Moser which blasted St Georges Buildings & nearly killed my Mum & me when I was a baby. I have a photo somewhere of you & me & our mums standing on the landing, I think we were about 2 or 3 years old!
I couldn't find any mention of the rocket, but I was told that a lot of young girls started work at Nettlefold's that day & all died in the explosion. Horrible to think of & I feel lucky to have been too young to remember it. Well after all this I hope I've found the right Walker. Please let me know........

This my 1st time on this site/forum. My name is Danny & I lived in Stanhope Buildings, Redcross Way from 1954 to 1970. I am trying to find any photos relating to Redcross Way from these dates. I went to John Harvard Library this week looking for any photos of the above.
I went into the school that now stands on the site of Stanhope Buildings, but they were unable to help me. I have read all your posts and found them all v interesting.

Hi, I too am looking for pictures, but of Mowbray buildings which joined Stanhope buildings. I believe that I have a picture of a parade with the Borough pipers in Redcross Way. I shall attempt to root it out for you. Would you happen to remember the Cunningham family that lived in Stanhope buildings?

That family used to live underneath me an, bekieve it or not, I did someone a favour concerning the Cunninghams & it was, in a roundabout way, to do with Noel Cunningham...friends or something. At the moment, Noel ios serving 18 yrs in prison & has only done 3 so far. As Cunningham is quite a common Irish name, I hope, in a way, that this is not the Cunninghams to which you refer!
Yes It would be nice to see that picture, if you still have it?
