81 Clarendon Place - the yellow house on the left of the photo - was where I lived between 1957 or 1958 until 1964 or 1965 after we had moved from 77 Westbury Road (we swapped houses with a Roberts family)
During this period I went to Christ Church CofE Infants School (otherwise known as 'Belgrave School'), St Mary's CofE Primary School and the Dover Grammar School for Boys.
The house is a typical Victorian terraced house (I think Clarendon Place is the longest street of such houses in the UK) with 2 and a 1/2 rooms downstairs, and 2 and a 1/2 rooms upstairs. In my day, there was no bathroom, just an outside toilet.
On the far right of the photo is 93 Clarendon Place where Sandra Williams (the same age as me) once lived.
Other children of our age (give or take a year) who lived in the street included: Dave Coglan (Titch Coglan, No. 102), Terry Knott, Dave Roston (No. 27), Phillip Heath (No. 77), Paul Tomlinson, Brian Pearce and his sister, Pamela Pearce, and Alan Wratten.
Christopher Bonner, who was a couple of years younger than us, lived opposite No. 81.
I'm not exactly sure of when I moved from 81 Clarendon Place, but I think it was between 1963 and 1964 (not 1965 as stated in the first comment).
Anyway, the next house I lived in was 2 Norman Street.
