Gosh, All our yesterday's.  Very good and what memories  I had looking at the older photo's, ballroom dancing, steam engines.  Thanks for that Chris.  I actually remember the gas lights being put out on my way to school in the 50's and being lit around 4pm.  Knockeden Park still had not changed to electric then.  My grandmother lived in Sunnyside street and still had gas lights in the house as she would not change to electric, her iron scared me as the flames came rushing out. She died in 1962,  the first thing my uncle did was wire the house.
