Terraced Houses of Leicester

Frederick St

Whilst searching for a photo of an address I've been given I came across this website today:
Terraced Houses of Leicester. It's a celebration of the small pre-WW1 terraced housing that could be found in Leicester and in which many of us later lived.

College Avenue

This site, created by Colin Hyde at Leicester University as part of the East Midlands Oral History Archive, focuses mainly on the outsides of the houses and the look of the windows, roofs and doors. There are photos of some streets already mentioned in this blog eg Hartington St, Mere Rd but also others such as Frederick Rd, College Avenue and a pub called the George and Dragon.
How cool would it be if you found your old house here!  Let me know if you do and if you have any similar pictures that you might want to share.
