Our property has two street frontages. This is the one at the back.
On the right of this photo are the back gardens of old homes like ours. But as these are typically on double blocks some of which have been split and sold off for new homes. On the left are all new homes from around the 1970s. When we arrived here 20 years ago this street was not at all appealing but time has made a big difference, gardens have developed and curbing put in. It's looking quite nice (though suburban) now.
