  1. @Jammy:thumbsup: - from when the photo was first posted by George Railton, with the nickname Hocky for No 13, I have racked my brain/memory to drag back the name of the small lad, with the rough/loud voice from around the Oval area (1960's). I would say it's definitely Kitty Brewster.

    My dad was Ernie Gurney the butcher next door to The Gardner’s Arms. 

    It's strange how small things stick in your mind from 60 years ago.I remember your dad used to have the butchers van and delivered around the estates in the late 50's and early 60's. We lived 5, Coquetdale Place (near the Oval shops) and I hated salt on anything so it always seemed a treat when Ernie Gurney turned up and my mam would get me a bag of plain crisps (probably Smiths) with the little blue bag of salt in. 🙂
