WE go back quite a few years for this week's special Days of the Old School Yard.

Reader Bob Waygood dropped off this great shot of a street party that brought together a community in the way that only street parties can.

The end of the Second World War was the signal for the nation to shake off those dark days with a street party.

And no one partied harder than the families of Gladstone Avenue in Manor Park.

This photo of the festivities was recalled by resident Bob as it shows a recently deceased local character, Arthur Light (back row, third from left). Arthur's brother, Ronnie, is seventh from left in second row.

Bob can put a name to some others: Betty Redding, as was, (back row, second from right) whose hands are on the shoulders of Yvonne.
