photo of Joe under a willow tree was taken circa 1949-50 at "The
Coppice" which was Joe's father's place of employment where
he worked as the gardener. It was a hall of residence for student
teachers and was owned by the Leicester Education Committee.
'As kids we loved to go to the Coppice. There was
an orchard and rambling gardens. It was such a contrast to the
life we led on the Saffron Lane Estate.'
