Kathleen A. Paton (nee Kelvey) - Re Perth Terrace, Lombard Street

I was born in 1942 at No.5 Perth Terrace, which was off Lombard Street. Our household consisted of my parents, Mabel and William Kelvey, my brothers Billy, Alan and Arthur and myself, Kathleen. Perth Terrace was made up of two rows of terraced properties end on to Lombard Street. Between the two sets of terraces were small front gardens and we shared a communal yard at the back of our properties.

The occupants of our half of Perth Terrace in the 1950 s were as follows:

No.1 Margaret Pimm

No.2 Cyril & Flo Hart who lived there with their sons, Jim and Peter, and daughters, Ann and Margery. In about 1953 the Hart family moved to No.1 Willoughby Street. This was the house that was used in the film Saturday Night and Sunday Morning in which Margery and her friend also made an appearance. After the Harts left Mrs Elizabeth Jubb moved into No.2.

No.3 George & Edith Newman lived there until about 1956 after which it was Ernest & Daisy Robinson.

No.4 Arthur & Rita Taylor, whose children were Graham and Ann.

No.5 Our house

No.6 This was initially shared by two unmarried ladies, Sarah Sally Rose and Annie Tattershaw, although Sally moved out part way through the 1950 s. Those living in the other half of Perth Terrace were:

No.7 Emily Uttridge

No.8 George & Beatrice Gent

No.9 Winnie Truman

No.10 Arthur & Elizabeth Taylor

No.11 Abraham & Florence Hirst

No.12 Albert & Mary Lowe

My dad worked at the Brick Yard on Carlton Road while my mum remained a housewife. I attended Lenton Infant and Junior School and then went on to Cottesmore Girls School.

When the area became due for demolition we had the choice of moving to the likes of the Clifton and Bestwood Estates. However our landlord, a Mr. Horborie, offered us alternative accommodation in Wollaton and so my family moved to No.195 Wollaton Vale.
