Kingsley Avenue

What we know about this image :

Taken from Brierton Lane looking north along what would become Kingsley Avenue. The cemetery would be to the right of the allotment fence on the right. There are still allotments on either side of this path which still links Brierton Lane and  Kingsley Avenue, but the only building is Rift House Farm which is on the site where Kingsley School stands near Oxford Road roundabout. Only a small part of  Westbrooke and Southbrooke Avenues had been built on the Brooke Estate at this point which dates it perhaps to the 1940s.

Reverse of photo says Mr RA Armour 43 Arncliffe Gardens

We have received a comment that this photo is in fact a view looking up Waverley Terrace to Old Swinny's Farm. Top right of the photo is where The Woodcutter was built. The cycle route was originally a bus route the buses were later diverted up Tynebrooke Avenue. The buses terminated at the junction of Southbrooke and Westbrooke Avenue. Do you have any memories of this?
