Stanley street


Images slowly appear...as i put them  through my editing suite coaxing  them to make a picture a memory that i can work with!

 Faces pop out of the darkness!!!People i lived with and really loved and cared for.....
 Real working class women who worked hard and helped each other through thick and thin....
 watching each others children ,caring for them feeding them when each other had no money....
 a real sense of comunity!
 Faded  pictures of children now adults who have their own children....
 The circle of life never ending.......
 These children were giving the most precious gift...the gift of love  and caring being taught to share and help each other and above all attention .....

 There wasn't a time were they were not watched by an adult as they played up and down the lane....
 every body eating together in the sunshine picnic style!
 Yes we didn't have fancy houses or big gardens or lots of cash.....

 But we had fun and laughter and something that was so so special............
 something that you don't realise you've had till its gone...

I'm still in touch with most of the friends i lived with  and they were as excited as me at seeing these........
happy happy days girls x
