About this memory
Helen Ritchie, with her parents.
"The stair doorway of the house where [my father] Ben Hendry was born and brought up. He had a school job in the Primrose Shoe Works delivering shoes when he was a boy.
"Every building in Primrose Street was demolished in early 1970s along with Ferrier Street nearby, where [my husband] John was brought up - the new houses were not an improvement in my opinion. [My father] and Helen's mother were cousins." - Patricia Anderson (née Hendry)
