Hi wjmilne. The Spion Kop(Workmens Dwellings) was 55 King street. It was situated across the road from the police station.

Thank you very much Baz. I do appreciate that news. Now does anyone remember James McQueen, Master Butcher, wife Margaret, and family who lived there between 1916 and 1918.A son Nelson was born there in 1916 and he was later killed in 1944 in  Italy.In 1916, James, the father, was in the Army.
