An advertising space belonging to Charman Davey is visible on the side of the building in the centre of the photograph.

I don't know when St John's Place was rebuilt but I was born at number 8 in 1951 and lived there until 1961.

My husband (William Healey ) lived in the house that was Caroline Gowers shop in 1945-46.

That's interesting, Helen. Caroline Gower was a great-aunt of mine. Had she moved out of 45 Carlton Hill by then?
