GARY AUSTIN I spent from 1952 to 1968 living on the Noel Parl Estate. I was at Noel Park School from 1953 to 1958.
The estate was run by a private company in the early 50s an interview was required to see if you were eligible to rent a house on the estate.
Morley Ave had a tree in the middle! Russel Park was a bit barren, All in all it was a decent place to grow up.
On Saturday mornings there were showmen on spouters corner, fire eaters, a guy with a whip, a woman who made doves appear from a hat.
Sunday the Sally Army Band marched up and down the avenues..
