Here's a couple of photos of Old Priory and one of the kids' playground at the end of Leicester Street. Also some aerial shots of the area, the first two from 1959, the third from 1961, the fourth from 1966 and the last from 1967.

Anyone remember the Mc.Ready's, Annie was the mother's name, there were about five sons, and no girls, that would be in the 40s to 60s.
