Growing up in Lenah Valley in the 50s & 60s

by GW, over 2 years ago

I spent the first 21 years of my life in Pottery Rd with my family & friends from 1953 on. Fond memories of playing in the bush and exploring the creek near Pottery Rd, also the large sand banks (mostly clean fill dumped near McCann Cres & Edge Ave). We used to build cubbies & make cracker bombs using Tomb Thumbs & small balls of mud shot high from a willow stick over the sand banks. Other memories include exploring the frog ponds and old quarry of the Giblin St brick works.
