in this picture from the top of the Race Hill i can see my mums house. It is the one on the corner of Lintott Ave. & Whitehawk Ave. It was 88 Whitehawk Ave. its just up from the white car in the forground. When i was a lad I & some of my mates use to climb the small building you see in the forground. If you got caught by George the copper he use to clip you round the ear. Does anyone rember me. I use to play football on the pitches in the evenings with Colin Banks, Dave Powell, Dave Sallavan, Johnny Weeler, Brian Johnson, & many others until it was dark. They were great times, the shops in front of my mums house was a sweetshop,a chemist, a grocers & greengrocers. The chemist belonged to Mr Novis.the green grocers was Mr Gilberts, & the grocers was Mrs Sullys for which i was her grocery boy.I used to take orders out on a carrier bike for 17/6 a week. Happy days but now gone forever, but still in my heart. Whitehawk was a great place when we all were kids.

Hi Alan.

I was born at 88 Whitehawk Ave. in 1947. I lived there till I got married at the age of 25. Do you remember any of the lads. Colin Banks. Dave Powell. Dave Suvllan. Johnny Weeler & Brian Johnson. They were great days.

All the best
