Albert and Beatrice Mondy in their garden with fair in Park behind

Taken: 1940s post war, Ref: M1799

Albert and Beatrice Mondy in their garden which was partly behind their house at 63 Newland Street, and also had a ‘bottom garden further back through an arch (now the site of two bungalows accessed from Maldon Road, i.e. Gueth Cottage and Ridgeway). He was 5 ft. 2 ins and she 5ft. 8 ins. There was a green door into the bottom garden from the back access road to the Spread Eagle from Maldon Road; the door is still there. The photo is taken looking south-east. There is a fair or carnival in the Maldon Road Recreation Ground (the Park) behind, over the fence. The cedar tree was about half way along the southern boundary of the back part of the garden, on the boundary with the Park, and is still there in the garden of one of the bungalows. Perhaps same occasion as M1800.
