This Old House

By MickyMc
Bet it has many memories. I love the screen on the window...and the door is the same colour as our door today.

What a lovely old weatherbeaten facade. So characterful.

I have had four houses since I got married Mavis,and my first one was the happiest memories off all.Not least for the fact it only cost me a pound a week for the rent.It was only a room and kitchen,but it was a place to stay where we could call our ''own''.In these days,(1975),it was common to stay with either set of parents for the first couple of years while you saved up enough money to get your own place.I did not fancy that idea at all,and as my wife Jan worked in a property agent at the time,we had the chance to get the place for a cheap rent.What I did not tell her until we moved in was that the pub just down the road from it belonged to my uncle.This was quite a major factor in my reason for wanting to stay there too.To have a cheap place to stay and a cheap place to drink,seemed good enough reasons to get married I thought.Not bad reasons I suppose as 36 years later we are still together.It is a lot tougher nowadays though.The house we are in now costs more than a pound a week,and my uncle that had the pub is dead.The pub is still there though,but it is as dead as my uncle so I do not go there anymore.Yes,36 years later we are still together.But I fear the romantic memories of the early days has eluded me !!

Aww in need of a bit of TLC - find the contrast between the age of the building and the graffiti interesting - how many generations later than the old building? - Ina

Such character in this old building. A shame that someone has to paint graffiti on it. I admire graffiti on city walls, but somehow it seems rather sad and out of place here. Disrespectful somehow.
