Anyone else remember??? Mum also worked for Jimmy McKeown running the Daintee home bakery in the gardens too, and us two girls worked in the shop after school.

Hello
My Mum lived in 114 Duncairn Gardens her name was Normoyle

Hi, my parents and I lived in 121 Duncairn Gardens, the Lamp lighter office. We knew Margaret Piathcaitley, she was a really good artist, could read the tea leaves and she cleaned our house while mum ran the Daintee home bakery. Small world

Hi, was that Harry that lived in Duncairn Gardens ? Also do you remember a David Crawford that lived in 18 Adam ST. or a Jean Mc Bride that lived in 7 Adam St, or Jean McDonald who lived in 32. Maybe you came after us.  Regards Paige

Belle,did you ever go to the the evangelist hall in Adam St. I went there in the early sixties,if you stayed for the whole meeting you got a packet of Polo mints,now I wish that I paid attention to the message they gave.
