"WE'ERS THA' LIVE "?

SCHOOL STREET.

 

The photo above was taken by Jonathan Dabs in 2003 shot from the entrance of Whinney Hill School.

School Street if I remember right was just in front of the Gable ends visable

 

For the first few years of my life I lived "Dahn't Backs" [ Down the Back Street's ] in School Street, Thrybergh. The house's were in terraced rows comprising of "two rooms up and two rooms down" with a usable attic. So the downstairs back room was the kitchen, dining room, and general living area, and the downstairs front room was usually reserved for when you had guest to entertain. The two upper rooms and attic were used as bedrooms.

 

The front Gardens were tiny little strips between the house and pavement, and the back yards were shared with one neighbour. the yards were asphalt with brick walls dividing the yards. I have a few early memories of School Street, mostly about the back steps to the house. I tested them for hardness a few times, and came to the conclusion that stepping down them one at a time was far less painful than bouncing off them all in one go.

 

At the bottom of the yards were the toilet and coal house. Who could forget those outside toilets on a winters morning, EEE' them wooden toilet seats were welcome back then. The ceramic kitchen sink was often used as a bathtub for the kids.


I can just about remember the Hawker who used to come around selling fruit and Veg. [ I think it was Stan Naylor or Mr. Lilley from Lilley's farm on Vale road.
