Was born and lived above Griffins bar,can remember Charlies fish-n-chips shop,Gizzis cafe,had the best ice cream,on Nothwoodside Rd there was the Rex bar,Farrells bakery,Mrs Clark,s sweetie shop,O'Brien,s funeral parlor,I can,t recall the fish store on Dobies Loan,we used to buy steam whelks and pick them out with a pin
I lived in the only close in Sawfield Place and my best friend lived above the Griffins pub and our kitchen windows looked into each other. As children we all played up the 'showgie' which was at the back of the Endrick / Pheonix picture hall which was also situated in Sawfield Place. We moved to Palm St about 1953 and my friends family moved to Northwoodside Rd above Ross's bakery. Do you remember any of this?
