Wow! I remember it very well as I married my wife Jeannette from Hartington Road on the 26th Jan 1963. I was sweating on getting to St Wilfred's church from Portslade. We made it by taxi but it was freezing in that big church for the ceremony,we were both shivering as we took our vows. We are still going strong so it was worth it!

Brilliant photo. Thanks for adding it. I rarely see any historical photos from this area.

Any locals care to hazard a guess as to where this photo was taken up the Grove? Was it near your shop Carol?

I think it's near the bottom of Elm Grove. On the right about halfway up you can just see part of St Joseph's school in Milton Road.

This is great, I remember walking home form St Luke's School to Islingword Street in the snow, we had just come from Canada so it made me feel like home. My mother used to work at the Diamond Bar in the back of Woolworths in Western Road, she arrived home looking like a snowman

This is just below Milton Road, near the bottom of Elm Grove. I grew up not far from Homewood stores and I recently found out my husband is distantly related to them but no, it wasn't my shop. Sad to see it's no longer there though.
