This picture, taken August 1947, shows my aunt Hilda in front of 14 Jesmond Rd in Hove. I lived there for about a year aged 10-11 with my grandmother Amy Rubidge.

My grandmother used to have boarders. She didn’t own the house. I don’t know who owned it. You can see the 14 on the gate if you look closely.

  • I love family pictures! This is a picture of my great Aunt Hilda in front of her house. If my Great Aunt Hilda was anything like her neice, my Aunt Lesley, she would have been a very wonderful lady!

  • I had a mad crush on a girl who lived in Jesmond Road, her name was Sally Holmes, sadly she moved away and lost touch.
