Went back to Twickenham Street in the nineties to show my eldest boy where I used to live and play but it had gone, replaced by a rats run of housing. Didn't think I had any emotional attachment to the old street but felt saddened that it had gone forever.

Dee, the fire broke out in the Burgess family home at 25 Dagmar St. Apparently Mrs Burgess went out to get some groceries and when she returned about 15 minutes later the house was ablaze. Her two children, 3 year old John and 2 year old Raymond who were left alone on the sofa sadly died. Her husband, to make a sad story more tragic, was serving overseas at the time.

In reply to Vic 46 , Albert Duff was my paternal uncle . He lived in Leadbetter St and worked in Sloanes ( next door ) as a lorry driver . His son also called Albert is living in Manchester. I occasionally see his sisters Mary and Eileen . I was born into 19 Rutherford St. my fathers name was Tommy Campbell, he drank in the Harrington bar also known as “ the House of Passion “ I was never brave enough to ask why   I,ve just found this forum and have spent an enjoyable few hours reading through it .

I remember delivering to Sloans on Leadbetter Street, late 1971 or maybe early 1972, they were the only building in the area still occupied, the rest were derelict or being demolished. They had a couple of mean looking Alsatians chained up and I always made sure I kept out of their range.
Think Sloans eventually moved to somewhere near the top of the Shankill Rd., when they finally moved out of Leadbetter Street

Thanks V . The streets  were full  of characters then . A couple of doors up from us lived an old guy called “ John the Boy “ and his wife . They were both illiterate, never learned to read or write , I remember my mother reading their letters aloud to them . A few doors down , on the other side lived Thomas Waite and his family , he runs a boxing club in the Stadium , I believe , a great guy .  :)
