My BB footbal team used to play regularly at Chrnide. There were loads of red ash pitches. Last time I passed it was very overgrown.

Grew up in Vallay Street, No. 23, opposite the park from 1962 to 1975.

Any other old Vallay Streeters out there?

Hi Marion I remember those shops and when I was wee I thought they were so far away, most of the time we'd walk there and on special occasions got on the bus, lol. I wonder if I'd ever seen you, not that I can remember, though I did try lol, I used to look up at the windows in the residences up top.

Anyhoo's I was born at 24 Castlebay Street, my Grandparents lived there, below them lived the Rielly's, my aunty Margaret, married Tony Rielly at the time,... our family were the Adairs. On the bottom of the close was the Hunters, Valda, was a dance teacher (sadly she passed away). I think next to my Grannies lived the McGuigan's, I only remember Allanah, Im not sure though, maybe the Mann's lived in the close aswell, on bottom of the close next to the Hunter's, lived "Dan the Ice cream man" I think, not too sure of that though.

I have quite a few memories of living there, we used to play across the road in the vacant lot, swinging on ropes off the trees,... trying to catch mice in the dirt mounds, climbing trees, going over to the bakery where they made bread and getting the mis'shaped (rejected) bread. We'd run back to grannies for the butter to eat it, those were the days, lol.

Twice I had the fire brigade rescue me lol, once because I climbed a tree so high I didnt want to climb down, and secondly because I got my head stuck in a railing in someones landing lol...funny now but not then, hmm.

Thats what I think anyway

Aunt Marion & Uncle George, who lived above the shops in Liddesdale Square, were indeed the first people to have TV. It was fascinating to a 6 year old, my big brother used to take me up there for 5pm to watch BBC's Children's Hour with my cousins, I vaguely remember it started with a roundabout going round. My cousins and I even used to sit and watch the test card laugh.gif It was a treat to stay at Aunt Marion's and Uncle George's, I went about with their daughter and we often stayed at each other's houses. I was a teenager when they moved round to Liddesdale Road, I remember one night when I was about 13, it was getting late and even although I only lived a couple of streets away Aunt Marion said, 'Och just stay the night, Uncle George will pop in and tell your mammy,' but what did I do? 'ran home and got my jim jams' laugh.gif

As you know Tori, I remember the Adairs from Castlebay Street. I went to school with your aunts, I also vaguely remember Valda the dance teacher.

The first people to get a TV rolleyes.gif My aunt lived round the corner from the shops and I used to love the malt loaf (not the sickly sweet kind) they sold in Galbraiths and the barley sugar sticks from the chemist. Occasionally we would go over to the newsagents at lunch time from primary school to get our fix of penny caramels.

Aye Ashfield, as Marion says, our Aunt & Uncle were the first family in Milton to have a TV as far as we knew and back in the early to mid 50's all the weans in the neighbourhood used to pile in to watch BBC Children's Hour, it was like a Saturday afternoon at the cinema laugh.gif

Our Aunt Marion lived above the newsagent and used to work in it so you probably bought your penny caramels from her biggrin.gif

Avril, I don't want to get into a fight but my aunt and uncle, who lived behind the shops, had a telly in 1953. I know because all the family went up to see the coronation (I was bored!!). It was an extremely small viewing screen and resembled a goldfish bowl. Actually it would have been more interesting if it had been a goldfish bowl. I forgot to mention the apple and rhubarb tarts that they sold in Galbraiths with pastry crusts lke scotch pies, fabulous. Pretty sad that my only good memories of Milton concern food rolleyes.gif

Sorry ashfield, I'm not in the least bit interested in fighting over petty differences of opinion. we obviously didn't know your aunt and uncle but as I said in my last post, Marion and myself's Auntie & Uncle were the only ones as far as we knew in Milton that had a TV in the early to mid 50's in other words we're not saying that no-one else did, just that Marion and myself didn't know anyone else that had a TV in those days. What does it matter anyway, we were only reminiscing and recalling happy childhood memories?

Avril, I was being a bit tongue in cheek with my reply. My apologies if it sounded confrontational smile.gif
