Love those twin outdoors thunderboxes, Brian.
Brian Walbey: We had one of those at the first house I lived in until I was nearly 11.

It looks like they've been there for centuries doesn't it
Brian Walbey: It does Chris, all the buildings look like that.

Green is the main colour here.
Brian Walbey: Perhaps the curators of the museum got a 'job lot' from a local paint manufacturer smile
A real old grow-your-own garden Brian.
Brian Walbey: That was the sort of garden my Dad had when I was a youngster.
It's very cool.
Brian Walbey: Very much how it used to be Mary, my first home when I was born had a similar garden and an outside toilet like the pair in the middle picture at the bottom.

Eee... it's grim oop north! How lovely, t hough, that they have moved and rebuilt to allow future genertions to glimpse back into just a tiny part of our social history.

No doubt these tiny cottages housed large families
Brian Walbey: I'm sure your'e right Bill, big families seemed to be the thing in those days, and not by pre-planning I suspect.

I bet it wasn't as neat and tidy as this when it was being lived in, Brian
Brian Walbey: I reckon your'e right about that Lisl.
