Regarding the nostalgia picture in The Crow October 29, I am the child standing in the doorway of what was my grandparent's house at Buckland.
They were Joe and Emily Carter who owned the general store in the picture.
The house next to the thatched one was owned Mr and Mrs Lott. She ran the post office and at sometime there was a blacksmiths in the yard behind.
The house was The Chequers public house, and the older girl is Vera Andrews who lived at Lew Barns, a cottage somewhere off the Barkway Road.
