Hi Weman, I lived in Canmore st at that time, just opposite the steps! Where abouts did you live?  Nella.. :smile:

129. Next door to the McCarrols on the same side as the steps towards Cupar St.
Just facing the wee shop.

Hi Weeman,I remember Jean McCarrol,she was a lovely girl,very petite!The shop across from you was owned by Davy and Minnie Moore. Do you remember Lizzie Saulters? She lived next door to Meely Hart's wee shop just above the steps.   Nella..

Just to butt  in here  with a wee funny. :smile:  .while researching family history in Births Deaths and Marriages in Chichester Street I came across the right name of a family member and address, as I read it, was Wilton Street (which is on the Shankill) and all my family came from the Falls.  So that threw a spanner in the works. :yahoo:   When I brought my sister to see it she immediately saw that it said Milton Street which was on the Falls.  I thought I had found a skeleton in the closet too   :swoon: :swoon:

Hi Weeman,Did you mean that Jean McCarrol is in Canada? I know Jean Moore is over there, and what is your connection to the Watsons ? I grew up with all the Watsons and the Kennedys who were cousins ,the Kennedys lived 2 doors down from me.
I am in Australia,have been since 1972... Nella.

Bobby Watson is married to my first wife's sister, Dorothy Houston.
They live in Newtownards. Rented my house in Canmore st when they first got married after we left for Canada as I thought I would only stay in Canada for two years. Then the "fun and games" started so my mother in law came out to me in 1970. Then another sister in law (Aggie & Billy Paxton) moved in until the urban clearway started and our side of the street was made in to gardens.
I am in Montreal from April 1968. Minnie died 1994.
Jean McCarrol lives somewhere in Toronto. (Think Brampton area)
