You couldn't have gone into The Melrose Cafe VB because I am ten years older than you. smile.gif
You just proved it by putting in your birth date.

When I lived in 52 Stirrat Street as stated before, there wasn't anyone by the name of Butler living in our close. Top third floor, was our family, the Corrigans, opposite us were the McMenemies. Second floor were the Ryans and the Wilsons. Bottom floor Clarks and Penders. Right up until I left in 1948-1949.

Names are coming to me now. There was Jock Clark and his wife, Michael Clark, Tommy Clark, Mary Clark and I think a Sheila Clark.

I went to school with Philomena Ryan, who lived right underneath us, with the Clarks under them. She had a sister with red hair called Bridget.

McKay was mentioned in one of the posts. I went out with an Archie McKay from Gairbraid Ave. He had a younger brother.

The name Lennox sounds very familiar to me. No. 47 had to be across the street which was a smaller building than the one we were in, which went the full length of the street and round the corner. I remember a boy called Archie McLean who lived across the street in the first close beside the wall where the Saunders boy sat on the wall singing and playing his drums.smile.gif

Another name that comes to me is Eddie McKinnon. He lived across the Street.

The names I remember of the Wilson family opposite the Ryans, are Norah, Gina and Nellie. I went to school with Gina.


Hi Elle, As I mentioned in another topic, my husband's Granny Saunders' (46 Stirrat Street)maiden name was McMenemie. I wouldn't be surprised if the McMenemies that you mention at 52 Stirrat Street were related to her, as back in the those times families usually lived in close proximity to each other

There was never any mention of that while I was there, Georgia. btw, my older sister remembers the young boys playing the drums sitting on the narrow wall, across from our house, as if they were sitting on a horse. She was sure one of the boys was a Saunders. smile.gif

Hello smile.gif I'm wondering if any folk here know of an Alderman Road. Also if any of you grew up in the time frame of 1930-1955. Another thing is if the surname Lennox has any connection to you in the Appleby St, Rockvilla School area.

All the best:)

Turns out that the Alderman address was where I went after being delivered at 1014 Great Western Road; that must have taken me some time to get there.
