Back Lane between Blindburn & Bygate Streets

Another smashing family photo from Canadian exile Len Stephenson. This shows his father holding Len’s older brother Alan when he was about three years old which dates the photo around 1926/7. Note the relatively new mortar joints where the bricked up openings for the outside "middens" (lavatories) used to be. Also the vent pipes sticking above the wall which had a rounded top brick as all walls did to make it harder to climb over.
