Hi Muckles I lived in Hurst St in 1962 bought a house in Kenmare St the following year and lived there until 1971 previous to then I lived in Matilda St  from about the mid 50,s went to the local schools then to Kelvin if memory serves me well the Todd family I remember had like myself blonde hair lovely faced little kiddies hope this helps you  Cheers M ☺☺

Scotland:
The only kids in my Granny's house would be us grandkids.  We lived in Soudan Street, up off the Donegall Road.  You may have been thinking of us when we visited.  I had blond hair.  My two sisters had fair hair, and black hair.
It's not enough that we do our best;
sometimes we have to do what's required.

Lam I worked with jim in mackies for a while. He was a labourer. He was one good looking dude. The last time I spoke to him he was a bouncer up near queens university.i always wondered if he was as hard as his reputation because he was a very quiet polite person when you spoke to him.
