Beach Road

I recently bought some photo’s on Ebay. On the back of one is written Parsons
46 Beach Road. I should think that they date to the late 1950’s. It would be
lovely to find a relation of the family!

Mr / Mrs Parson 46 Beach Road Southsea,

Manchester Road

Picture of Nelly aged 16-17 years old on windowsill of house in Manchester Road with the two children who lived opposite.

‘There was a dairy on the corner of Manchester Road. And a butter shop – there was a glass swan in the window and even though the shop got bombed the swan still sat there. We would chew on liquorice wood instead of sweets.’
