Mary Ferrie sent in this photo,

Mary said, “This is a photo of my grandmother Grace Hawkins Dunsmore and myself at the back court of the cooperative buildings early 60’s hope you can use it. I must have been 5 or 6 so it would be 1960, she lived in the Co-operative buildings later moving to Small Crescent. My dad John was her youngest child the others were Elizabeth Eyre, Grace Mckean, Greta Dunsmore, Matthew, Robert, William and Charles.

Love your site especially the old photos”.
