... our Aunt & Uncle were the first family in Milton to have a TV ...


Our next door neighbours sister was the .......in Blantyre and when we walked all the way down to her house to watch Children's Hour we had to call into the wee shop first to change our jeely jars for money 'cos she charged a penny a head. (the money going to the Children's Ward in Hayrmaires (?) Hosp. in E Kilbride, where she was a nurse)
But I remember us all sitting quietly, cross legged, on the floor in the darkness waiting for Children's Hour ...
Try that today rolleyes.gif tongue.gif

We did not have a TV ,but went to neighbours house to watch childrens hour at 5pm.I remember that it was against the law to bet off turf,we had to put a pink card in the window to tell Tommy the bookie your dad had line to put on the dogs at night and horses mon - sat.The bus's were the 28,8 , 47. No trams and no pubs.I went to miltonbank school. I left milton nov 1963 and have not been back ,but have many ,many,happy memoirs of the Milton &possil.

Hi Rabenutam, what number did you stay in Shapinsay st, I lived in 42, also went to Miltonbank
I too went to see TV in mrs Lamonts ?? house, she ran the catalogue, so the kids went there to pay the instalments.
I left 1967 when I got married, visited my mother but once she died, there was no reason to return
I have been back in the past few years, to take photos for a friend, who lived in Mingulay st. Changed place, lot of demolition
Bye now, norrie
