DCP Steps Back in Time

DCP takes a look at the history of 70A

Last Summer DCP had the great pleasure and privilege of meeting Fred O’Callaghan. Fred’s family were one of 70 A’s original occupants.  As we showed Fred around 70A (the home he left 7 decades earlier!), he was kind enough to share with us his cherished family memories, some of which have been captured by these incredible photos.
