Got a look at Frankie Quinn's site - brought back a few memories of the Strand - some of the pics really seemed like yesterday! All comes flooding back!

The picture showing the army at the top of Woodstock Street is amazin - it is so clear - like yesterday! Remember walking down that street past John Murray's a thousand times! Used to get paraffin oil out of John's shop for an old heater we had.

Maybe the ghosts of the wee streets are still there.? (give the piccie a moment to load)
