Mel, we are to be cherished we have loads of memories, any little thing can set you off down memory lane when you get as "less young" as us.

Here is the web address for anyone who has the inclination to listen to the signature tune of The Ovaltineys, oh and by the way I have to say I was only a baby when I heared it :roll:
ha ha.

Well, here we are, 11 years on, and I have I think got confirmation that the ginnel was indeed Dukes Lane.

In Nov 1929, according to the local paper, a bus had an accident on Marsden Rd at its junction with Dukes Lane. Most of the houses from 20 to 28 (evens) were damaged. Googlemaps shows that still today these are at the junction of the topmost of the Lane. Casterton Ave, made in the 1930s, cut through, and part of the lane at some point became Thames Ave.

I am dead chuffed.

Well done Rex, I know just where it is.
All okay with us, hope the same with you.
