Kenb and Mary,

I vaguely remember going to the dentist on that corner, too. Got the feeling that, in the late 1950s, it may just have been an All-Purpose Medical Centre for I remember going there to have all of my vaccinations in preparation for my trip to Australia at the end of 1960.

Also remember going to the Church there on the odd Sunday when we didn't go up to St Pius' at the top of Cally Avenue.

St.Lawrence Church is an amazing looking building. It's like something from an old western movie with a row of arches on a long porch. Sorry don't have a pic.
St. Pius - the building still stands, but no longer has any religious use. It's now part of a retirement home.

DavidT,

That's sad as I think I may have been in one of the first groups to make both my First Communion and my Confirmation at St Pius' in the late 1950s. I've got a picture somewhere and I'll post it when I can find it !

Aw...the only time I waited in a big queue at St. Puis was during the dark days of the strikes in the 70s. That was just to get some candles. When I got to the front the priest said "oh now even the proddies are coming here to see the light". smile.gif he still gave me candles though.

ken,

This is it, my First Communion photo at St Pius', I think in 1957.

I look at the picture often to reflect on some of the friends I left at the end of 1960 and can still remember quite a few of the names. What has happened to them since then, I think of, too !

The young priest in the picture, I remember, was a very caring priest with an outgoing attitude that was foreign to the time, and he would make us all laugh with funny stories as he prepared us for that First Communion.

Enjoy,
