Hi Castlereagh.  Sorry to hear about Margaret.  She was much older than me, so I didn't know her very well, but the coffee drinking always stuck with me.  No offence intended about George, it's just I was very young and I didn't recognise the different conditions - spasticity was one I thought of because I had an idea that George couldn't walk but that may be my memory playing tricks on me.  It's great to hear that he is still going strong.  I did have older brothers and sisters - John was the eldest, he's 73 now and lives in London.  Paul died of cancer 8 years ago in London.  Pat lives in Southampton, though she does have some health problems.  Kathleen is in Kent.  Philip died in a car crash about 25 years ago, and Rosie and I are both in Kent.  We were the youngest, with me being the baby, so I doubt that your dad would remember Rosie and me.  I don't remember him, though I do remember Sammy.  Was he in the Army with Paul?  You dad might remember the Galways too, they would have lived next door to him I think.  Others he might remember were the Crothers family?

I left  Elmdale Street in 1963 after my mother died.  I lived with relatives for 3 years after that on the outskirts of Belfast and came to England when I was a teenager.  I lived in London for a while before moving out to Kent.  I occasionally go back to Northern Ireland to visit a friend but I haven't got any family left there now.  Give my regards to your dad and to Sammy.  I'll mention them to Pat and John when I talk to them. I'm sure Pat will remember, she has a great memory.

Hi

Just read your message and was wondering if any of you from East Bread St remembered the Polly's? They used to live near the top end, the top end not being the end closer to the Newtownards Road.  ;)

Madness when you next see him will you pass him along a "Hello" from the Yank.  He should know exactly who you mean.
Thanks.

Mcd I was asking my Mum and she recalls Valerie Somerset was an only child.  Guess that was a rarity back in the day before the pill.

 I lived in East Bread st for many years and knew the Crowes, some of them went to Bloomfield School which some of you might remamber, I also knew the Blackstocks, Aggie Parker, also the Mchanes, does anyone remember theneMcleans that lived next door to Mrs Shaw and her two sons Victor and Billy, they lived a couple of houses from Machoods wee shop which their side door  was in East Bread St, I can name you everyone who lived in the lower end of East Bread St if you are interested in remembering some of the others.
