Bright Street, Wolverhampton. Violet was born at number 25. Courtesy of
I remember very well our next door
neighbours - I think he was a bank manager, because I
can remember him in those days wearing a silk hat and a
Mother used to say their name was Adams and
at night Mother used to put me in the front porch by the
gate - I can remember it had an iron gate - to wait for
Mr Adams to come home.
Mother said that I used to run
back and say “Mummy, ‘Mamers’ is coming!” And he used to
come up to the gate and he used to say “Ah! My little
Violet” or words to that effect.
