This includes The Great Doods Pigeon Loft of 18 Doods Road, which was commandeered for the war effort and kept under armed guard. 6 of the Pigeons got the Dickens Medal from the PDSA. By brother now lives there and I would love to be able to get a copy of this photo, if possible. Regards Beth Howell.

Hi Beth, oddly enough I live in the next road, and dug up a WW1 medal belonging to a Clement Cecil Clay who lived at 20 Doods Road until his death in 1973 - but he was originally from Chilvers Coton, Nuneaton - your neck of the woods! Regards John Griffiths-Colby

We lived in Doods Road, almost at the top of the hill on the left from 1969 to 1985. Where the lady with the pram is there was a green-grocers. Judging by the advertising sign there was probably a grocers there at the time of the photo

Judging by the costumes and the uniforms this photo is likely to date from 1910/1920.

The name of the greengrocer's was Rolfe, 3 generations. Next door was the Snowflake laundry which had a corner site round to Croydon Road. Opposoite this other laundry entrance was a row of shops:- Millie Reid's confectioner, a butcher, Kendall's grocer on corner of Holmesdale Road. There were 2 pubs on the Doods Road corners' Panther and Leopard. I was born in Doods Road in the Casterbridge nursing home at the top the hill out of sight in photo, but lived in Deerings Road
