When my Carden School teacher Miss James left for Canada to get married, she sent a letter and post card to me. This was in 1955 when I was 6 yrs old, I still have it 56 years on.
I remember walking to school in all weathers as there was no school run in those days. The area where Birchgrove flats are was waste ground then, as was the area at the bottom of Braybon Avenue, where the Roman Catholic church is now.
I moved from where I lived in Denton Drive over 40 years ago, but have happy memories of the area.
