No not yet! My dad's been on the piss again for the last few days, it's all Ikey's fault for coming back to town...   ;D

But he is recovering now, and in the next few days we should have something. I wanted to pop out this week from work and take a few snaps, whilst the other inhabitants were at work and they would not be offended whilst I snapped their homes for you guys', but I have been stuck inside this building till dark for the last 3 nites, so just bear with me....

Mike,

While you are in 2nd Ave can you get a snap of 60/2nd Ave too and then trot up to 21/1st Ave and take a photo of my final home at OM?

Also of the garage in front of where the trees were. This is where my dad built the 3 Andy class yachts with Aubrey Baker and his brother Phil Bruce.

Cheers bru.

I will more than likely catch up with these photo's on Sunday as we are having the traditional sunday power cut.... mmh! where's the power station when you need one!  ;D

I see that the local ISP here in NAmibia is also down on Sunday for 12 hrs upgrading... don't worry this site is hosted on servers in Texas,

I also lived in 1st ave E 7-1st Ave, Tel 3260
for 28 years..... phew! 

Now I live in the Long avenue street..hehehehe!

Ann, outer Crescent must have been renumbered as I do not find any numbers between 1-14, but taken intom consideration and view of your original 60's pics, it seems that 20 outer crescent might be yours... was your house on the corner?

Mike - thanks for the photos of 20 2nd Avenue - again, how very posh compared with when we were there.  I can't get over all the trees and greenery everywhere although we did have quite a smart garden when we were there, but not such smart fences and gates.
Re 2 Outer Crescent - it was actually 2 Inner Crescent we lived at.  I don't think 20 Outer Crescent had been built when we moved there.  Would really appreciate if you could find 2 Inner Crescent and - yes it was on a corner.

Mike,

Many thanks. Many memories flood back. The house is different but not my bedroom that I see.The one taken from the back of the house with the gates which were not there when we lived in the house.

Yessir the garage looks as it did. As I recall only one saide of this double garage had doors.

Many thanks Mike
