identical except for the radiator grill design. The Zephyrs were the Zephyr Four or Zephyr Six and
the difference was the engine size and the Six had more luxurious fittings.

Used to love watching Z cars in the 60s, not sure if it was Zephyrs or Zodiacs that they used.

They were Zephyrs Pete, although I'm far too young to remember the TV programme, did they have TV back then?

We had our first tv a Sobell model from Rentaset in 58 and it was 5 shillings a week, I can remember as I had to go down to Fowler Street every Saturday on my bike to pay it.
The first tv in the street was your old next door neighbours the Irwins, can remember us kids been invited in to sit on the floor to watch the coronation.

I think most people with cars ,were thought to be rich ,, :D

Nice photos Anna,

The lower photo, mark 11, is very similar to my dads car, except his was sky blue on top with cream underneath.
Can still remember the reg. no. WUP 924.
It probably only did about 20 mpg, (on a good day). Another strange thing were those long 'bench' type seats.
About 8 of us inside and not a single seat belt !!!

A few of them were left alone, especially near Chi.

I was born on Stephenson Street, where the The Cyrpus was (is?).
There was a great chippie on Moffett street, and an old offie on Stainton/John Clay.
The chippie was still there in the late 80's.

Great time as a scoy bout in that area!! :lol:

if you were born in stephenson street did you ever know any of the sim family or the judson family or the anderson family from that street who also went to canada

there were sim and judson families in shakespeare street and also marsden street ,i am related to some of the turnbulls that lived round there as well

Sorry, Shadow, I don't know the Sim, Judson or Anderson families from that area.
I was only 8 months old when we moved to Whiteleas.
However, the Andersons may be the same Andersons that moved to Whiteleas at around the same time.
I remember Paul Anderson. He was a couple of years younger than me, but had two brothers who were older.
They lived in Turner Avenue.

I only came to Canada 12 years ago, and haven't really connected with any Sanddancer emigrees as yet.

I can still remember several families from this era but sadly none of the names you are looking for. I rememeber the Barches who lived at the bottom of Marsden Street towards Chi Road; The Jaggers and the Lillies from Harold Street and the Carricks, Walshes, Cheesemans and the famous piano teacher Gertie Ochleford all on Chi Road, smashin times.

Shadowplay, hi there,

Not sure if this would be about your time, but was there a family called Musgrove living near the Cypress ?
I can't quite remember, but they may have had a corner shop nearby.

I remember Maurice Musgrove, who used to clean windows in the area, then eventually moved to Green Lane area.
We used to call him "Mushy".
He'd occasionally do handyman stints in the local pubs.
