Aye,aa lived in No 13,which was on the end of the first phase of the development,and wor wesh-hoose had the key-bricks sticking oot ready for the second half of the square to tie into..which happened after a year or so,a was only aboot four years aad then,in 1948- July 1949.

The bricks were like a ladder for us kids ti climb onti the wesh-hoose roof....such adventurous excitement we had in them days......electric leets ye cud switch on and off at thi waal,[nae matches,or leeted bits of newspapers ti leet them!],Hot and caad running waata,at thi torn of a tap...nae pails or jugs ti carry from thi end of thi street!...oh!,and a strictly remember thi massive SIX-PINT,electric kettle [cooncil supplied],that tuk a haaf-oor ti boil if it was full,which,for a family of six,it had ti be!
