The stables were our play area, we used to crawl in under the doors and play in the hay, as well as climbing on the roof . aaahhhh carefree days.

I've put this pic on here myself before, can't remember where.
Tilly is the girl you want to answer questions on this, she worked with the donkey's and I think she knew the owners well.

You are right Pablo, Eddy was behind the Perch and Jack was further along up the hill a bit and turn left.

It is Jack in the picture. A real gent.

jack & his wife lived opposite me in Richmond street and his sister Joan (who has sadly just died in a house fire )lived next door to me in same street. Yes they owned the donkey's they also ran the ice cream van business for many years which used to be sited in front of perch rock. They where a lovely family and where respected very highly in new brighton.
