    On the second picture are Mr. & Mrs Diggins who lived at 78 Gloucester Road. Centre of the shot, to the right of the two ladies who look to be standing on the wall. Mr Diggins is standing to the right of the pillar and his wife, dark hair, very smart is standing to his left. They were an extremely nice couple.
