I was born at 208 Barton St in 1944 and lived here until I was 13. We had the accommodation behind and above the shop in Barton St. The back entrance opened into a large square area full of storage buildings; the one right by me was a slaughter house. Many a time we had to get past a large bull tethered outside. Then we moved to Moor St, Tredworth until I was 17. Then my Mum and Dad bought a large house in Bristol Rd where she ran a elderly ladies nursing home.
