Why I live where I live 2

Colman Street
North Fitzroy

This tiny semi-detached terrace house style has become very trendy now, but was the cheapest housing available back in the 1940s.
Our stay here was brief but served to establish a couple of traits in my Father that were to greatly influence our lives over the coming years.
The first was that he discovered a method of making money by buying and selling motor cars.
This was to become his occupation once he learnt enough about it tobe able to quit his bus driving career.
The second lesson learnt was that there was a substantial profit to be madefrom buying and selling houses.

A great many posts here, kid. Thanks for them all. And thanks for the mention.

P.S. You're wrong about Kansas. It's most distinguishing feature is that it has a city named Kansas City. Kansas City has a professional baseball team. It is located in Kansas City, Missouri.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope your Lions are doing better than mine (The Detroit Lions).

I liked the stories about your father. It sounds like you and he were pretty close.
