Thanks to Lilian Simpson, seen here with brother David looking towards North Avenue.  High Usworth Juniors is in the background.
David is the author of 'No Homes For Heroes' - a local history book that tells the story of New Washington's Hostel Estate and its civilian Squatters.
He also painted a brilliant 'Lowry-style' Watercolour.   It's at: What's Where; Collieries; Washington Miners' Welfare Hall; Painting etc.
