Most of my Bluetown pictures are on the site Lee. You don't mention what pictures you're after?

I was amazed to see your web site and it really took me back in time.I was born in the workhouse at Minster at Christmas 1933 would you believe.My father was 68 years old Edward Bolton lived in Hope street retired dockyard worker.Apparently he hung himself for fear of going to prison for my mother Florence Aspey was only 17 and she worked for him in his shop selling broken biscuits and other tack.He had a go one evening and she became pregnant and her mother threatened to report him for rape if he didn't sign a document committing him to financial support etc.If there is anyone out there who knows these people or the period especially Edward Bolton (a picture would be nice)I am trying to fill in a few gaps.I briefly worked for Vic Sandford as an apprentice signwriter in Sheerness high st when I left the Foundling Hospital aged 15 but was unaware of my parentage and background.I do remember Blue town and spelling the word dinners with three "N"s in a cafe down there.The owner who did not notice it refused Vic Sandford the opportunity to put it right because it brought in extra business.There is more to tell but hope this might get some memories going.gordon
