The little girl is my niece H and she is now a beautiful young lady

perhaps not, but way back then I really don't think words had the same connotation(but I could be wrong)

Lovely picture....I especially like the sunny background and the town laid out in the distance.
I have run up and down those steps so many times, going to or coming from Bullough park to my Grans house, which was on Higher Antley St

Thanks . It was just one of those snaps when I happened to be in the right place at the right time .

I had many happy hours in Bullough Park and Priestley Clough when we lived up Fern Gore . They were my playground .

Mine too...in fact was talking to my brother(via e-mail...he lives in Sydney) and he was saying that those two places were our theme parks...and didn't they just beat all those commercial enterprises into a cocked hat?

They certainly did , and all for free , except when Charlie Court opened his hut on the park to sell ice-cream and goodies , especially ice-cream soda .

Picnics down the clough , exploring the Red Barn as we called it , following the stream up to the Five Arches . Couldn't beat those days .

In a nutshell, that is exactly the conversation I had with my brother.
