Regarding the location, the white houses are the end of "The Row". The chickens on the right were "run" by Mr Reg Brown. Reg's father Paul had a cycle shop (long since demolished) inside the 90° corner on the Parkend road opposite the Miner's Arms. Mr Savage the station master lived in the house just visible behind the left hand pole and the Ballards lived in the house directly to the left of the same pole.
Thanks also to Bryan "Chippy" Moore.

Is this photo taken from Park Hill looking towards "The Bridge"?
