Judging by the house opposite, I'd say the car was parked next to my friend Dave Goy's house (No. 46).

Hi Festive
Yes you are correct we lived in No 48 for many years. I remember the Goy's very well but time has erased the names, Mr Goy used to work in the EMI, something to do with video tapes I think.
It was a very friendly road in them days especially before they built the houses opposite, we had fields between us and Northolt Airport.

Hi Chris
They probably moved there about 1963/4. Dave the eldest was born in 1951(like me), his brother Graham was born in 1953 and friends with my brother Kelvin. Then a big gap and their sister Jennifer was born in 1968.
The house opposite your car was built later than the rest of the houses opposite, up towards Warley Road (I used to live in Chaucer Avenue from 1951-1978). I believe a Miss/Mrs Green lived there and she taught at Grange Park when I was there and I think is/was on Board of Governors at Dr Triplets (Josh will be able to confirm).
You're right Mr Goy (Tom) worked at EMI but audio tapes though (he got me loads of their X1000 tapes for nothing). Mrs Goy (Eileen)also worked at EMI in the reject part of the vinyl pressing plant. I know she was there at the time Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the moon" was released and had almost the record number of rejects.
Tom used to cycle to work and probably well into his 50s learnt to drive (and is in his 80s now).
Dave, I managed to contact again last year after a gap of over 20 years, through his sister Jennifer on facebook, unfortunately he's not like us and not into nostalgia.
I also remember you're neighbours on the other side, the Pankhursts, he was a devout communist and used to have communist posters in his window at the time of elections.

Hi Phil
Thanks for the names, all flooding back now. We had great neighbours on either side, the Pankhursts were political as you describe, the children are Michael, Alan and Jennifer.
Originally there was a gap either side of the road between the "White" houses and the newer ones but eventually a house was built in each of the gaps.
Great days in a great street.

So where did you actually live Chris and which schools did you go to? (Phil lived in my road, we never knew each other at the time, though he was unwittingly the cause of me getting my very first gold star at school!)

Hi Josh
We lived in 48 Gledwood Ave from around 1947 to 1975, I went to Yeading lane for a short period when we lived in Shakespear Ave and then Grange Park, followed by Barnhill which was the second year after it opened, no halls or Gym everything like that was done in the corridors and finished up at Southall Tech.
