Hi Nick, I lived around the corner from Symons St in Connaught St. I knew quite a few of the residents in Symons St and the name written rings a bell. Other names I can recall were, Robinson, Blackender, Buchanan, Steele, Bailey, McLarnon, Johnston. As you say the area has really changed with a number of houses now demolished.

Sorry Whitten.
Hi David,was reading through some of this and noticed the name Whitten from Roden St. I had mentioned the name of Harold Whitten on other thread but no one seemed to know the name. I think Harold was a head boy when he was in Kelvin. I don't remember him from school as he was older than me but we knew each other when we worked in my first  place of work in the  offices of Strains Printers, Athol St, Grosvenor Rd. I think his father was a minister or had something to do with the Prespartarian Church. I have not seen him in a long time but always wondered what happened to him he was a really nice person to know.

Hi colin yes the name walker is in my family. Elizabeth dowds sister was Mary Ann (minnie) and she married a Samuel walker in 1900. samuel died very young and only married for 5/6 years.  Mary ann died in 1968 and was buried from 16 Eblana street and her daugther jane walker also buried from this address in 1971. All three are buried together in the city cemetery.  On my mothers side of the family there is kane's as thats my mothers maiden name and the came from bakers street.   jim

Hi Jim, my granny was Mary Kane that lived at 7 Roden Street. She lived there from the early 70s I think. She was married to Henry Kane (my grandfather), and then later married Billy Holden. Henry had 3 sisters, Maggie, Ellen and Mary. I think one of them may have lived in Baker Street. Could I ask what your mum's name was? and her parents? perhaps we are related?
