I believe that it is just possible that I may be the boy in the picture shown above. My family lived at No.7 Maxwell Street until the clearance programme caused us to move elsewhere. I would have been seven at the time the photograph was taken. Admittedly I can't recall the photograph being taken but then it was almost fifty years ago. I also suspect that the lady sweeping is Mrs Dorothy Dutton who ran the corner shop with her husband Alex. I do know the dog wasn't ours - we had two - one called Sandy (light brown) and the other Patch (mostly white). I should be very interested to learn if anyone can corroborate the information I have provided.
