Upper Kent St

Upper Kent St 41-47 1965

Etta Grady came from Forkhill, South Armagh to Leicester in 1957. She came over for work and lived with family here. Later she lived at 49 Upper Kent St. Her uncle used to work at St. Pat’s club, Abbey St and so she used to spend a lot of time there and had a great time. She married in 1960 and was married for 50 yrs. She remembers being happy and busy and having a good life.

Upper Kent St has now gone and  would have been where Maidstone Rd now stands. Thanks to Dennis Calow at Vanished Leicester for the photo.
