HI TBOY,
Very clever those rope world blokes.  My granny it was Twice the half it length.

Never had the pleasure of visiting the rope works must have been some operation.
I used to teach the Cubs and Scouts how to make rope here in Manitoba, just using three strands of binder twine.

You sure get around on BF. I've seen you on all sorts of threads.

I found out that I can only attach 128kb file on the thread, the file for the Od Lodge road in 44 Mb

Have a good day.
  keep it up manitoba ;)  you are doing great.

It is a small world Altoni. I don't remember what house she lived it her name was Hannah Arnott and she was blind. My cousin now lives in Newtownabby and he is 82 this year so he probably knows you mum.

It's not so supprising having a good memory at 85 -we can recall what we did as kids but we can't remember what we had for breakfast.
Glad your mum is still healthy and now is the time to pick her brain for her memories and family history

Dreaded going to Aerial Street Clinic to have my teeth filled or taken out. Cant remember why they sent me to Cupar Street Clinic in the 60s for any work on teeth. Both places were dreadful.
 
 :( :(

I remember having gas to get a tooth out in Areil St clinic,when I came round after it I was unceremoniously dumped out the door onto the Street, I didn't know what day of the week it was & was staggering all over the place & felt sick as a pig :bad: :bad: :(

It was Lincoln Avenue clinic i dreaded going to.  No anaesthetic when they filled your teeth  :unsure: . From what i remember it was like a production line. One big room with several dentists working at different patients at the one time. No wonder people have a fear of going still.

does anyone remember the old lodge road it started at peters hill and finished at agnes street

I think the top end of it was still there in the late 70s. There was some old derelict buildings on the left hand side but there was a bakery in the middle of them.
