Belle Vue Road, Cinderford looking towards Drybrook.

A photo of Cinderford looking down Belle Vue Road.

The card was sent in the 1950's by a young lady in Cinderford to her penfriend in Australia. On the back is written: "The arrow is the road leading to my school Double View Secondary School. The cross is where my grandad's farm is".

David Price added: "I think that's Leonard Clark's house on the extreme right".

John Phillips added; "... The house on the left-hand side of the road, next uphill from the white house is No.81. This was the home of Mrs Gertie Young, mother of the late Sir Jimmy Young the well-known singer and broadcaster".

The same view in 2009
