Marie, yes remember them all. I am glad your kids loved my Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Lily as I did. Bridget was definitely a character and loved my Mom. She told me one time that she would have gone hungry many a time if it was,nt for my Mom but then everyone shared what they had in those days. I remember the Boyles as well. Hope all is well with you and yours. :-*

these are photos of my wedding in 1963 taken at Albertbridge Congregational Church. Anyone know the lads looking on? Folk always came out to wish the newlyweds all the best in those days.

That is the church in Thompson Street if I am correct. the second photo at the bottom left the young lad looks like Jakie McElhone from Clyde st. RIP

Ach Rep you are right about the Church. I am so sorry about the wee lad in the picture. I have often wondered if anyone would know these lads but have only learned how to post pictures. Thank you for the info. GS
