This was taken in 1953 and as far as I know is the only one that shows the view down Cross Street towards Queen Victoria Road. I'm the one in the pram and my mum is outside our house distracting me with a home made woollen rattle. Johnson's shop was on the left hand corner and the farm across the road is just obscured by the building on the right. They pulled down our house when I was 11 years old.
