John I found your blog very interesting particularly with regard to the Wolseley Street section. I went to Italy in 1963 with the Reading Central Club and made a friend on the trip from Wolseley Street, Ken Rose, so it was nice to see a comment from him in your comments section.
I was also very familiar with the Southcote estate. A very good friend of mine emigrated from there to Perth. What a small world it now is!
