Bert Hatter in his backyard at 2 Stoneworks Cottag

Picture Added on 04 August 2006.


I remember Bert and his wife Connie and Ted and Owen their sons, because my grandparents lived in No.3 in this photo on the other side of the fence. My grandparents were Albert and Nellie Breeds. I remember Bert who used to go shrimping a lot and I used to go down the back steps and watch him clearing weed and small crabs etc. from his basket, I always asked him how many he had caught, and he always said about a gallon or so young Bernard. This photo interested me because I was born in 1946 and cannot recall a fence dividing No. 2 and 3 it was just a courtyard with the toilets of both houses at the bottom of the steps with a shed to the side. I was a little younger than Owen I believe, but it was him I knew mostly because Ted was much older. They were a lovely family and I was really pleased to see this picture of Bert because it showed him exactly as I remember him.

Lovely to read your comments Bernard - I remember you well and your grandparents of course. The fence was put up in later years by the people who moved into number 3 I think, and you can see dad made the most of it by growing tomatoes against it!
