  1. Photo thanks to Steph Woods at the New Barrack Tavern
  2. Thanks for that. Not heard of them before. I'll give it a read later.
  3. Wolfe Road looks good. It has the house on the corner at an angle. It seems that the original building has gone, and has been replaced with a more modern on.
  4. First stab at the first one was Margetson Cres. off Wordsworth Avenue, but on looking at Streetview, I can see that it isn't. I would say that, by the look of the pebble-dash house next door, it's on a council estate of similar era. Maybe Southey, Longley, etc. Buchannon Road is a possible. Right size, number of windows etc. but the house next door is wrong. Buchannon Streetview Looking more closely, the house next door has had an extension to the roof. The hip is now a gable. So it's a maybe.

    Here you are Dude. My cousin was researching Shingler as part of his research into a branch of his family and came up with this thread. He re-touched, and sent me, this copy of your photo to add to the forum. Hope it's ok for you.
