Hi Guys and Gals gr8 to hear from ya, glad weve managed to get it cleared up and that the Collin's family lived in 76 portallo st and im pretty sure it was the granny (tho possibly aunt) that lived in Redcar St ive managed to get my hands on a 1970 street directory which confirms it, Manuel i remember was electrocuted by a faulty washing machine in portallo st and of course its possible he stayed with relatives in redcar st... The Family your talking bout Olelad (and we think it was Gray's lived just below Mount St )I remember there was a shop on the corner called the Seasame a drapers and wool shop that many a time i had to run to, for my mum, to get her wool for knitting  anyway Billy Gray was indeed a brilliant artist and i believe his father was a cartoonist for one of the comics of the day tho cant remember which one , aint it gr8 that weve become part of the "sad old people who've nothin better to do than talk about all of our yesterdays "  .YO. ..

 
 
in that list there was a billy gray who lived on the main woodstock rd and clem will confirm this. he was a top notch drawer. his drawings of world war 2 airplanes were fanastic. often wonder did he ever made it as an artist or the like ?!

those with a street dir.  eustson st. at the bottom end were it joins ardgowen st. there was 2 streets which ran of euston st to the castlereagh rd . could someone put up the list of those living there in euston st say around 1970. i remember aguy who went to st augustines probably st anthonys as well who lived down there but cant remember his name. would have been 1 maybe 2 years older than me.

I used to live on the Rosebery Road and i remember the Magees son Johnny. I also remember The Regan family, they lived a few doors down from my Aunt (Cassie Boyd). Mary Meli's chip shop was frequented by everyone in the area and to this day you cant get a pastie like Mary's.
What a friendly, neighbourly area it was, no one cared what you were, everyone helped everyone else.
