View to Bantry St and Peel St
View to Magees Brewery from Derby St
I lived in Peel St from 1961 when I was born, to 1970 when we moved
to Halliwell. I still attended Clarendon St until 1972. Sometime
between 1970 and 1972 and walked round to Peel St one school lunchtime
to watch the houses being demolished. To be honest I wasn't sad,
the houses had been condemned (so I think it was about 1970) and
we had no inside toilet, or heating, and all five of us (parents
and three boys) slept in one bedroom.

Although Steve went to Clarendon St School (which is not
his fault) he did send the photo's.
