My mum was brought up at 34 thomas street in the late 1940s and her mum Flo Roberts used to work at a butchers on Rodbourne Road.

Mums aunt Dinah Nevison lived at 148 Rodbourne Road.

I have fond memories of nans and the old railway hooter!

Visits to nans meant 50p to spend in Mr Hoares on 1p, 2p and halfpenny sweets, he always had a great selection.

I now live in Redcliffe Street and as i have redecorated my house over the years i have found plenty of railway green paint inside and out.

If anyone has any memories of Florence or Dinah i would love to hear them.
