About this memory

1950 – Here we are outside Grandpa’s House, Robert is pictured at the back, Heather Craig on the left and then me holding Ginger the dog and with Alan Craig to the right. Heather and Alan lived in number 12 Blinkbonny Crescent.

We spent hours going along the Terrace and up and down Blinkbonny Road and into the Crescent. All the children living in the area played with us up and down.
