Yes, that's the house.  Brian says that he lived next door to the Crossley's  and that he spent many a happy moment :D  sitting on the "arms" of the lampost.   He moved to Shard End when the council bought the house off his Mom and Dad.

Hi Edmund, just had a lovely phone call from Billy Gunn and a letter with the electoral registrations for Inkerman Street 1954.  By the way, Brian said that he never fancied swimming in the Rea.  Too many dead rats  :)
