The sunset was taken from the
empty allotments at Spracklands over the long roofs of the farm buildings at
fitz Farm. The house illuminated on the left is the home of the miss Lakes.
This house was demolished and rebuilt by Gordon Lake when he married.
In the centre is The Forge,
home of Jimmy Baker. The forge itself is to the left of the view, with an
enamel sign showing on the wall. The Miss Lakes' house lies between.
The right-hand picture is of
the East End Inn. It was run by Mr & Mrs Turner, and in the fifties and
early sixties, was a place where one could buy ice cream. On a Sunday
morning knocking on the back door was not well received ... a good reason to
send the boy!
