Thank you Google

Betty's house My house

What a fascinating program Google maps is. Now that they have incorporated street views into it, you can have a close look at the houses where you used to live. It does take a bit of work to get the exact location and the orientation correct but once you are there, the detail is incredible.

On the left is the house where Pam lived when she was in her late teens/early twenties. At the time her father was based at Crewe Fire Station and this was their house in Weston just outside the town.

On the right is the house in Gildersome where I lived before emigrating to Canada. Ours was the middle house which at that time belonged to the West Riding Constabulary.
