Ashburn, Moore Road

My grandparents owned the block and we were moved around a bit but ended up in the middle on the right as you look at the block from the front (behind the tree). I used to walk around the shelf like things all the time. All the kids did. We knew all the neighbours and they all tolerated our madness. I have only good memories of the place. The walls and the gates weren't there when I was a kid and we treated all the surrounding property as home. Nobody seemed to mind. The 'maids' and the gardiner lived above the garages at the back and we spent a fair amount of time there. They were remarkably tolerant and always very kind to all the kids. They were Zulus. They liked kids.
