  1. I lived at 71. I’m on this picture, bottom left next to Marjorie Ezard, who lived next door to me. They were the good old days!


    • Les, I am Marjorie’s daughter. I saw this photo for the first time on Twitter today and knew my mam grew up in Bickersteth Street. I thought that might be her. I think my Nanna Marie is seated 5 up on the right and maybe Mannie Ezard beside her. Sadly none of them are here now for me to ask.


  2. I remember Bickersteth street as though it was yesterday I lived at number 1 opposite the goods yard wall by Whitehall Terrace in the 1950s till it was pulled down in 1964/65. In many ways I wish it was still there, I miss that time of my life. it was tough but it was good. The tin bath hung on the back yard wall by the coal bunker the outside khazi with a shelf to put candle on. Great days
