Hi Heather I just found the site I stayed in Edington st from 1939 TO 1953 the Endrick used to let you in with 6 jam jars =to 3d also the local paper shops had some free passes to give out to children who maybe had a paper run and if you were lucky to get one you could take your wee girl friend to the picts for nout, this was a big deal for a 7 year old and raised your status with your pals.Do you remember the chippy about opposit North woodside rd the lady had very little english and if you were early for a bag of chips she would say (chipa no ready came back a yesterday) happy days

Well done on the passes. I'm sure the newsagent must have displayed posters of what was up and coming. But what did the cinema do with the jam jars? I had a hard enough time and still do persuading shops to take back ginger bottles and give me cash rather than goods. But jam jars. Where's the value in them? They weren't recycled.

Hi Dexter
In those days 1945/6 jam jars cleaned of coarse when taken back to the shops were worth 1/2d so 6 jars got you into the stalls for the Saturday matinee 3d I can remember just inside the doors were cardboard boxes with we divisions to fit the jars it was well organised.
Do'es anyone remember the bicycle shop in north woodside rd I think it was Mcdonalds he hired bikes by the hour and did repairs for customers, in his day he was a road racer and a lot of serious bikers frequented the shop, as I got a little older when in the shop for something for my bike sometimes the big lads would be chewing the fat and the man himself would be building up wheels I was allways amazed that he could do this and natter at the same time ha well happy days.
