Does anyone care to share some of their memories from boomer street?

My fondest memory would have to be playing on the steps as a child

hello again bhelena,remember some of the wee shops in my mind,but cant put names to them,i remember billy,s wee shop his wife had very sore looking eyes.i always thought that she was blind at one time and got her sight back,very pleasant woman.drank in the wee bar at the end of boundary st not sure if it was called nolans or dolans,and the one up from boomer st corner bath place,i think it was called smyths.funny the way men can remember the names of bars but not shops ;D :D
