I remember Margaret Hanna & Isabel Conn from Barrow St, the Wylies, Pollock's & Billy & Eva Liggett. I believe they lived on Suir St also. I will have to see if I can find the last photo I received from the gang down on the river street's & post it.

Hi U1922 AKA WJS   yes I remember wher Aunt Flo lived it was 15 Druse Street  and it is not there any more either  (cousin) IC
Hi Ed, Just got this post after I asked where you lived. My mum had a friend named Minnie Dadidson who lived on Louisa St. down past the wee shop on the right, & I had a great aunt who lived off Louisa St. (Colleen, do remember the name of the street aunt Flo lived on?).
I went to Lynn Memorial on Baden Powell St. & then Finiston.
