Finding the cinder stone path off Perry St.

I am looking for information on my Grand parents residence in the 40s. Their names Florence and Victor Peters. The location was a cinder path off Perry Street. The landmarks were two grocery shops on Perry St. Shuttleworths on the right of the cinder path and another shop called Mari’s (or similar name) on the left. My cousins and I spent so many happy summer holidays there. The small house surrounded by Poplars . A little further beyond their home on the same cinder path was a small goat farm that sold bottles of goat milk. My Grandparents had no electricity or running water just a well and rain butts and paraffin lamps. I believe this particular area had no electricity or water until much later. All my memories are from around 1946-1952. To the right of the cinder path and following another grassy path my Uncle Sam Peters had a Canadian style bungalow called Oakmont. I would love to hear from anyone who has any information on either of those locations now surrounded by modern homes. You can contact me at: I now live in Oregon USA
