The location is Westfield Avenue, which was built in two phases, the first houses to number 59 were erected in 1928 then the next homes came in 1933.
The Ministry of Aircraft Production bungalows (MAP houses) known locally as “flat tops” were built between the two original lots of houses to accommodate workers brought in to boost aircraft production at the AVRO factory in WW2.
The road between the different building areas was called “the bars” after the metal bars which had been positioned at the ends of gardens.
