As a boy, I had a friend who lived in Varna St, 2nd or 3rd house in from Cyprus Street. It was a long time ago now, and I cant remember his surname now, but think it was Delaney. Went to Australia about 1967.

Does anyone know if the poster ANND has a brother called Martin???

Didn't Jimmy Delaney the coalman live @ no 67 Cyprus St? CG, you would know that.
I once read that smoking and drinking were bad for you, so I gave up reading.

Thanks for your quick reply Cyprus Girl. Its obviously not them, because his name was Martin.   and perhaps they left before 67. Anyhow... not them.

Now my curiosity is up.  any idea where I can get a street directory for Varna St from the 60's? I can see their house in my mind, 2nd or 3rd on the left coming from cyprus street. Love to know their surname now

Reason for my asking is that I am in Australia myself now.

Funny that, it was only when I saw the name, old Jimmy came in to my head. I hadn't thought of him before that. Mind you, he's probably dead now, 'cos that was in the 60s and he was a brave age then.

Trekman, I have a street directory for 1949, would that be any help.

Thanks for that Val, the Delaneys aren't on the list, is there any way that a list for 1960 can be obtained? i reconize a lot of names on the list but i guess the Delaneys moved in later on. .CG

CG, there are a lot of people with Street Directories on here. I think maybe Shazza has a '60's one and maybe Harrydunn or Carbolicsoap, you could PM them.
I sent Shazza a PM, will let you know if she has one.
