Ron Green says: "This is before 1946 and probably around 1939 - the concrete road is in place. There were two houses being built and I was working on them when we had a very cold winter in the beginning of 1947. [ Two houses to the south of the existing one, built for Mr Davies and Mr Robey. ]
We had to stop work and were found other jobs - i.e. breaking up the houseboat ERYCINA etc.
Brian Jay has a copy of this, caption "After Draining. Early 1950s"
