10 Exe street is where the family home of Mary (Stevenson) and Bert Smith was located. However aunty Mary first lived at 12 Exe street the home of Bert Smith’s mum .
Strangely 12 Exe street was falsely entered as the residence of both Alec McGowan and Brenda Frances Prince when they married into the Stevenson family……More investigation is needed to clarify why.
Exe Street no longer exists. Housing was very compact in those days. Between Solway street and Beaument street approximately 450 houses were located.
