. The corner boys usually consisted of the Rice brothers, Danny Ardis,Davey Thompson, Tom Maginty,walter Thompson.


By any chance would one of the  Rice brothers be a Tommy? and Danny Ardis was the one who had had another brother called John, 3 sisters. Elish, Bernadette and Jean. Her real name was Mary Jane but she went by Jean.  I never asked why ???

I lived on Glenbank Drive, No 13.  Can still think back and name most of the families from the bottom of the street to the top.  The Coyles lived in Number 1 and the Crosby's lived in the last house beside the Park.  This was 1950 -1957 or there abouts. We then moved to Silverstream Drive. :-)

Georgieboy, I went to St.Marks with Jimmy Wilson from near the bottom of the street and , I think, next door was a boy called Jim? Harris, who although he had to use crutches, could play football with the best of us. Maybe it was because he would smack you with the crutches. There was also the Coburns in the street. I lived down Harmaony and then we moved up to Glenbank Place.

I came from Silverstream Crescent, and went to sunday school somewhere up Legoniel. I remember Isaac Henderson's barbers, he had wooden board puzzles and loads of old war posters up. Most of my family worked in Grangers shirt factory.
