Map showing where Grace Browne came from

Where was this in Reading, Grace?

Edges Street, 17 Edges Street. Yeah and then I lived there but I wasn't very happy to be truthful. She never used to bother me but changing my way of living in Barbados and coming here I wasn't very happy and then work at Huntley, Bourne and Stevens.

A lady, probably must have heard about her Mother Walker? She took me in and she thought I had come to do nursing and I leave the hospital and come to live with this man which was my husband. My husband and her was speaking and he talk about his wife, and she said to her husband 'That girl I see she's a married woman and she have three kids,' and they took me in and I live with her then for about two years, but she was like a mother to me then because she was from Jamaica I was from Barbados. I lived with her and she make sure that we got a house and then we had 27 Harts Road.
