There was a very big old two story Soft Stone house where this little park is in Tamarind Lane. An old eccentric white man use to live there. All the kids in the Lane knew him as "Happy". Apparently that grand house was demolished when Happy died.

To the far right you will find the Old Probation Office. Actually, it used to be the home of the Rector for the Moravian Church in Roebuck Street. This was in my Dad's time. The middle yellow two floor building is the Old Welfare Office. I have many stories about that place but it is not for this post. Finally, to the back in the far left you will find the famous Old Sugar Bond. Many evenings on my way home from Roebuck Primary School I would stop there and get sugar for my tamarinds. But I wasn't the only one, all the boys did it.
