Re: LINDSEY STREET.

It was 'Chick's' until my Dad and Mum took it over. It was renamed 'Sheila's' - my little sister's name. The infant in the pic is my little brother, Ray, on his first birthday in August 1963. His birthday was celebrated amongst other Linsey Street residents on the grass next to Parnell's shop. 3eaf7...

When we were, slum clea...
